Beady Eye's V Festival appearance seems in jeopardy, with the band facing an uncertain immediate future, after cancelling a string of shows in Belgium and Japane due to a 'serious' injury sustained by guitarist Gem Archer.

Liam Gallagher’s band were due to play the Lokerse Festival is Belgium tomorrow (August 5), and the Summer Sonic in Tokyo on Saturday (August 10). Both have now been cancelled.

It’s still unclear whether Archer will be fit to play V Festival, the band’s next scheduled show after Japan, on August 17.

A statement from the group’s management read: “Due to guitarist Gem Archer’s injury, the band regret to inform fans that they will be cancelling their upcoming shows in Belgium and Japan until further notice. They are very sorry for any disappointment this will cause but as Gem in an integral part of the band there is no way that they can play without him. An update on Gem's condition will follow.”

On Saturday 3 August, band member Andy Bell tweeted: “Wanna wish my brother @gemarcherbe a speedy recovery X.”
