The 'Sex on Fire' rockers announced the news on their Facebook page, writing: ''The band was en route to their hotel after their show in Boston when a pedestrian jumped in front of their tour bus, causing the bus to stop short, injuring Nathan Followill.

''Nathan is being treated for broken ribs, but is doing well.''
