Lanois In Intensive Care After Bike Accident
Canadian singer/producer DANIEL LANOIS has scrapped all concert dates for the next two months after suffering severe injuries in a motorcycle crash on Saturday (05Jun10).
The star is being treated in a Los Angeles hospital. Further details about his condition or the accident were unavailable as WENN went to press.
As a result, Lanois has pulled his tour schedule for June and July (10) to allow him time to recover.
A statement released by his representatives reads, "Lanois suffered multiple injuries but is expected to be released from intensive care soon.
"Due to the severity of the injuries, Lanois... will be recuperating for the next two months."
Lanois' accident has also hampered work with his new band Black Dub - the trio was in the middle of recording tracks for its debut album. The release has now been postponed until "circumstances permit".
Lanois has worked closely with producer Brian Eno and is best known for his contributions to U2's 1987 album The Joshua Tree.
