Kentucky band Cage The Elephant have been forced to cancel their up and coming tour dates due to an extremely bad injury to guitarist Nick Bockrath.
The incident happened at Holland’s PINKPOP festival on Saturday 8th June.
Cage The Elephant issued the following statement:
We regret to inform the fans that Cage The Elephant will be cancelling the upcoming European tour dates from 12 June to 20 June. Sadly, our guitarist Nick Bockrath had an accident on stage at “PINKPOP” and injured his leg badly (ruptured PCL, torn ACL, fractured tibia, damaged meniscus). He tried to play through two shows, but he now requires immediate surgery and is currently getting the medical attention he needs. All ticket refunds will be available at original point of purchase (with the exception of Isle of Wight Festival). We will keep you posted on future dates.

Cage The Elephant released their fifth studio album ‘Social Cues’ earlier this year. The album received rave reviews and will certainly be a contender in the final album of the year polls.
