Punk band Slaves have had to reschedule all the November dates on their current tour after drummer Isaac injured himself during the bands show at Norwich UEA on 18th November. The four shows in December remain unaffected.
Issac dislocated his shoulder and had serious tissue damage, which the doctors informed him could lead to permanent damage if he didn’t rest up.
The shows will now take place in January between 10th-16th, with the exception of Wolverhampton Wulfrun show, which due to a venue refurbishment, has been cancelled indefintley.
The bands full statement reads:
“Hello everybody. As some of you may know I dislocated my shoulder whilst performing the other night. I went to hospital and they put it back in for me but I am now in a sling and do not have much mobility in my arm. The doctor said I can’t drum for the next few weeks or there is a good chance it will come out again and cause some serious long term damage. Therefore we are going to have to pull out of the remaining shows of our November UK tour and they will be rescheduled in January. All your tickets will still be valid and we will all have a very nice time together, just not yet. I’m very sorry. Totally gutted but I guess shit happens doesn’t it. Love to you all. Isaac xxx”
