Elle King has been forced to cancel three upcoming shows after suffering a concussion at home. The singer-songwriter, whose new album arrives in early 2023, shared the news in an Instagram story on Thursday.

“No one ever wants to pull out of shows, especially me. I live for performing,” she wrote. “I slipped down the stairs making a bottle in the middle of the night, knocked my ass out, resulting in a concussion.”

The canceled shows were set for Tampa, Detroit, and Seattle on Dec. 7, 8, and 9. King had managed to play a few dates in December after the injury but decided it was unhealthy to proceed further.

“I tried to push through and played three shows, but the travel, lights, all of it only exacerbated things,” she wrote.

As of now, King will resume touring in 2023 when her headlining A-Freakin-Men Tour gets underway in February. She’ll be joined for most of the trek, which runs from Feb. 14 to March 25, by the Red Clay Strays.

King’s 2023 tour coincides with the Jan. 27 release of her new album Come Get Your Wife, a country-flavored project that includes the single “Try Jesus” and features guest appearances by Dierks Bentley and Miranda Lambert.
