Ed Sheeran has officially put his Divide tour on hold after a bicycle accident left him with a fractured right wrist and left elbow. On Wednesday, the 26-year-old singer confirmed via Instagram that he will be unable to go through with the Asian leg of his world tour, canceling the shows in Taipei City (Taiwan), Osaka and Tokyo (Japan), Seoul (South Korea), and Hong Kong.

The accident happened in London on Monday, October 16, when, according to The Mirror, the Brit was struck by a car. Despite the painful injuries, Sheeran got up immediately and cycled home, unaware that he had sustained multiple broken bones. It was the following morning when he finally decided to visit the hospital.

To tour or not to tour

The singer took to Instagram to share the news with his multitudes of fans, informing them that he was waiting for medical advice before deciding whether to proceed with the tour or not. However, with both arms in casts, Sheeran had no choice but to nix all concerts through November 5. As for the rest of the events on his schedule for this year, he said, “I’m waiting to see how the healing progresses before we have to decide on shows beyond that. Please stay tuned for more details.”

Very injury-prone

This is not the only bizarre accident Sheeran has been in. Previously, in 2016, he had burned the skin of his foot when he accidentally stepped in a hot spring in Iceland. And one time, during a pretend knighting ceremony, allegedly involving Princess Beatrice of York, he had his face cut open by a sword!

As of now, the Divide tour is scheduled to continue in Manila, the Philippines, on November 7. And a few months later, in March 2018, Sheeran is set to launch a stadium tour.
