Ed Sheeran on Monday via Instagram revealed that he was involved in a bicycle accident. The Shape Of You star was then rushed to A&E. What happened was that Sheeran was riding his bicycle when a car came and hit him.
Ed Sheeran was then taken to the hospital where he got a white plaster cast for his shoulder. His left shoulder was also in a sling.
“I’ve had a bit of a bicycle accident and I’m currently waiting on some medical advice, which may affect some of my upcoming shows,” wrote Ed on his Instagram post.
This hints that the accident may put his future shows in jeopardy. He is supposed to start his Asia tour by October 22. The A Team singer would be performing at countries like Malaysia, Thailand, Seoul, Tokyo and Osaka. He is also set to perform in Mumbai, India.
“Please stay tuned for further news. Ed x,” Ed Sheeran continued on his caption.
However, no news of his tour dates changing has come yet by his managers. The singer-songwriter’s right hand got the most damage which is his guitar playing hand.
The 26-year-old’s Instagram post and Twitter were instantly full with messages for him too get well soon. And fans showed that they were with him in time of need.
One Fan wrote, “well but you need the arm to play guitar right?! if its quite seriously injured you better do nothing with the arm until its back to normal state!. Concerts could be delayed for later, and you only have one arm!”
Another wrote, “Man, we don’t mind if you gonna stand in the middle of the stage and just smile , just come to Dubai ????????????????.” The Best British Male Solo Artist is set to perform in Dubai on November 23rd.
Another Tweeted, “OMG! HOPE @edsheeran IS OKAY! THERE HAVE BEEN REPORTS HE HAS BEEN HIT BY A CAR WHILST HE WAS ON HIS BIKE PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU.”
Sheeran, who is not only a singer but also a songwriter, has visited Europe, USA, and Latin America for his ‘÷’ (called Divide) tour. When his third album ‘÷’ came out, it reached top 20 in UK charts. It also became the fastest selling album by a male artist in history. The album was set to be toured in Asia by 22 October.
We hope that Sheeran gets well soon and carries on for his Asia Tour and the injury doesn’t alter his tour dates.
