The band had just ended a series of appearances at European festivals with a performance at the Belfort festival in France 2 days ago, when Neil Primrose ended up knocked unconscious while relaxing in a swimming pool in France.
The band have already cancelled forthcoming shows in Italy on July 15th & 16th, Les Vieilles Charrues Festival, France on the 19th and Dublin's Marlay Park on the 21st.
An official statement issued by the band reads: "Whilst relaxing in the pool, Travis drummer Neil Primrose struck his head and was knocked unconscious. After realising his predicament, other band and crew members dragged Neil from the pool and gave him assistance.
"He was taken by ambulance to the local hospital in Belfort to receive treatment and to undergo tests. Early indications suggest that Neil has sustained a fracture on one of his vertebrae and is still in hospital in France undergoing further tests."
"We wish to apologise to all our fans for any inconvenience caused but hope you will join us in wishing Neil a full and speedy recovery."
The full extent of his injuries are yet to be discovered with the possibility of the band having to pull out of playing V2002 as one of the headlining bands. More news on the state of the drummer, and the festival as a whole, as we get it.
