Beady Eye have cancelled shows in Belgium and Japan after guitarist Gem Archer suffered an injury.
The 'Shine A Light' group - led by singer Liam Gallagher - have axed their scheduled gig at Lokerse Festival in Belgium tomorrow (05.08.13), and the Summer Sonic in Tokyo next Saturday (10.08.13).
It's unclear how serious the injury is and whether he will be fit to perform at the band's next scheduled gig at V Festival on August 17.
A statement from the group's 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 in an integral part of the band there is no way that they can play without him. An update on Gem's condition will follow."
Fellow member Andy Bell took to Twitter yesterday (03.08.13) to support the musician during his recovery.
He wrote: "Wanna wish my brother @gemarcherbe a speedy recovery X (sic)."
