Beady Eye have pulled out of two music festival performances this week due to an injury sustained by guitarist Gem Archer
Beady Eye have cancelled gigs in Belgium and Japan.
The Liam Gallagher-fronted band were forced to pull out of their upcoming concerts at the Lokerse Festival in Belgium today (05.08.13) and Summer Sonic in Tokyo, Japan, on Saturday (10.08.13)because of an injury sustained by guitarist Gem Archer.
A statement from their management read: "Due to guitarist Gem Archer's injury, the band regret to inform fans that they will be cancelling their upcoming shows in Belgium and Japan until further notice.
"They are very sorry for any disappointment this will cause but as Gem is an integral part of the band there is no way that they can play without him. An update on Gem's condition will follow."
It is not yet known what type of injury Gem is suffering from, but his bandmates have rallied to show their support for him.
Fellow guitarist Andy Bell wrote on Twitter: "Wanna wish my brother @gemarcherbe a speedy recovery X."
Beady Eye have been keeping a low profile since it was claimed in a paternity lawsuit that married frontman Liam had fathered a love child with US journalist Liza Ghorbani in 2010. She is reportedly demanding £2 million in child support fees.
