Jason Derulo forced to cancel tour due to neck injury
January 6, 2012 — Multi-platinum singer and songwriter Jason Derulo suffered an injury to his neck on Tuesday, January 3, and has been forced to cancel all touring and promotional activities including his forthcoming sold out Irish dates at The O2, Dublin on March 5 and Belfast’s Odyssey Arena on the 6th.
Tickets can be refunded from point of original purchase from Monday January 9.
The 22-year-old Miami native injured himself while training for his upcoming World Tour in support of his current album Future History, which was scheduled to commence in Glasgow on February 23. While executing an acrobatic move, Derulo landed directly on his head, and suffered an acute fracture to his vertebra. After being rushed to Memorial West Hospital in Miami’s Pembroke Pines, FL, he was told by doctors that the accident could have left him paralyzed. Derulo has been released from the hospital but must wear a neck brace for the next few months. Anyone holding tickets for upcoming shows will be refunded at point of purchase.
“To all my fans who planned to come to the Future History World tour, the pain of letting you down cuts me way deeper than this injury I’ve sustained. My fans mean everything to me, so I’m praying for a speedy recovery in order to perform for you in the near future.”
