TAIPEI (Taiwan News) --Ed Sheeran has officially cancelled several upcoming Asia tours – including Taipei, Seoul, Hong Kong and Jakarta after sustaining a broken wrist and elbow due to a bicycling accident.

Osaka, Tokyo and Manila will be rescheduled for April 2018, while his shows at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on Nov 11 and 12 will not be affected.

"A follow-up visit to my doctors today confirmed that I will be good to go from the Singapore shows onwards," he says in a press statement released on Thursday.

"Osaka, Tokyo and Manila will be rescheduled for April 2018," he adds in the statement. "My dates in Taipei, Seoul, Hong Kong and Jakarta will sadly need to be cancelled as it's just been impossible to reschedule these for next year.”

"I'm really gutted that not all the postponed dates could be rescheduled and I am working hard with my team to try and come back to these places as soon as I can to see all of you. I'm sorry to everyone who has been affected by this," he said.

The Singapore shows will kick off his Asian and Middle Eastern tour, after which he will also perform in Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Mumbai and Dubai.
