    George from The 1975 slipped while getting off the tour bus and broke his shoulder. The band won’t be canceling any shows while it heals.


    . @Gdans1975 is ok, he's just sad he's gonna miss some shows over next few weeks while his shoulder heals. Slipped getting off tour bus…

    Best comment I saw (on reddit) was that he broke his arm trying to climb Red Rocks while stoned. (Red Rocks show on Monday was *phenomenal* by the way) But he played the show in Kansas City last night so must have been sometime after that show.

    Well that sucks. Only 17 days left until I see them. Hope he gets well soon.

    Are they getting a replacement for the next few shows?

    Looks like the drummer from the opening band, The Japanese House, filled in last night (his name is Freddy Sheed). Not sure if he will play all the shows or if they will find someone else.
