The Black Keys have canceled the rest of their European leg of the Turn Blue World Tour due to drummer Patrick Carney’s shoulder injury. The tour was cancelled through their March 10 performance in Paris, France and is expected to pick back up on April 2 in Brisbane, Australia.

TMZ reported Carney dislocated his shoulder earlier this year while swimming in St. Barth’s after a large wave knocked him to the ocean floor.

“We are very sorry to have to cancel our upcoming performances through March 10. Patrick needs time to heal. We thank all of our fans for their support and we’re looking forward to getting back on the road,” a post on the band’s website reads.

The tickets for the canceled dates will be refunded due to failed attempts to reschedule the original dates.
