Eagles of Death Metal Postpone European Tour After Jesse Hughes Injures Finger

Eagles of Death Metal
Chapman Baehler

Eagles of Death Metal have been forced to postpone their European tour for a second time.

Frontman Jesse Hughes tore a tendon in his finger, and the band has nixed seven shows in Europe that will be rescheduled this summer. Those include stops in Treviso, Turin and Rome, Italy; Nimes and Lille, France; Barcelona and Madrid, Spain; and Lisbon, Portugal. The tour will resume as planned on March 9 in Colombia. Their upcoming Canadian dates with Death From Above 1979 and U.S. festival appearances are unaffected. See the updated itinerary at the bottom of the page.

“I’m devastated that we cannot continue what has been a life-changing return to Europe,” Hughes said in a press release, “but I need to get repaired so we can continue to play rock music around this beautiful world, including coming back to Europe even stronger this summer.”

Eagles of Death Metal previously postponed their European tour following a terrorist attack at their concert in Paris in November. The band recently played their first show back in the French capital at the Olympia.
