Former Kiss star Ace Frehley has cancelled his U.K. tour after fracturing his wrist in a fall at his home.
The veteran rocker was admitted to hospital after the accident on Sunday and he has been fitted with a cast and advised not to play guitar for at least 10 days.

He has now scrapped his three upcoming shows in Britain on doctors’ orders.

A statement posted on the star’s website reads, “Ace Frehley has been forced to cancel his three upcoming U.K. tour dates due to a fractured left wrist resulting from a fall in his home… Doctors applied a Fibreglass cast to Frehley’s hand and arm, and he has been instructed not to play guitar or use his wrist for a minimum of 10 days.

“Ace would like to convey his deepest heartfelt apologies to all of his U.K. fans and to make it up to them… He hopes to be able to announce the additional rescheduled dates soon.”

The axed dates include two shows in Wales on 1 and 3 December, as well as a concert in London on 4 December.
