Jack White has cancelled his tour dates in Mexico after the death of his keyboard player, Isaiah 'Ikey' Owens.
The singer cancelled two Mexican tour dates after announcing the news of the keyboard player's passing via a statement on the official Jack White website.
The statement read: "It is with great sadness that we tell the world of the passing of the incredible musician Isaiah 'Ikey' Owens. He will be missed and loved forever by his family, friends, bandmates and fans.
"Out of respect for Ikey, the remaining shows of the Jack White Tour in Mexico have been cancelled. We will all miss you Ikey. You were and are an incredible artist."
The heartfelt post also praised Ikey for his involvement in Jack's band but also for his other achievements.
The statement shared: "Ikey Owens was an astounding keyboard player in Jack White's backing band. He also played with Mars Volta, Free Moral Agents, and many other projects."
After making the announcement yesterday (14.10.14) Jack cancelled a scheduled gig in Guadalajara which was meant to happen later that evening. They were also due to play Monterrey at the Banamex Auditorium in Mexico on October 15, which has now been cancelled.
