Punk icons The Stooges have been forced to postpone their upcoming U.S. tour to allow frontman Iggy Pop to recover from a broken foot he sustained during a concert last month.
The group was performing at the Peninsula Festival in Romania on 27 August when Iggy seriously injured two bones in his left foot.

The singer eventually visited a specialist to receive treatment after enduring prolonged pain and now doctors have ordered the star to undergo six to eight weeks of bed rest, to allow the bones to heal.

But the injury could not have come at a worse time for the band – The Stooges U.S. tour was scheduled to begin on Wednesday. Dates will be rescheduled.

A statement from the frustrated frontman reads, “I hate this, I hate like hell to cancel or postpone anything. I only saw the doctor because it hurt so f**king much and I couldn’t fix it myself.”
