The Black Keys have been forced to cancel most of their upcoming tour dates due to a serious shoulder injury sustained by drummer Patrick Carney.

The band’s entire European tour, which was to kick off February 16th and run through March 10th, has been called off entirely. According to a press release, “Due to prior scheduled commitments and venue availability, efforts to reschedule the original dates were unsuccessful; therefore all tickets will be refunded in full at their point of purchase.”

Carney sustained a dislocated shoulder in early January after a wave slammed him into the ocean floor. He was briefly hospitalized.

The band intends to return to the road in time for its Australian tour in April. See the updated tour itinerary below.
