The singer took a spill after his Nov. 11 show at New York City’s Irving Plaza, which resulted in a broken arm. Only hours before, Tomlinson had released his long-awaited sophomore solo album, Faith in the Future.

Tomlinson has been forced to postpone several upcoming in-store signings and promotional appearances across his native United Kingdom in support of the new album. The appearances will be rescheduled with new dates coming soon, according to an update from the star.

“Thank you everyone that’s listened to the new album so far, it means the world to me,” Tomlinson updated fans on social media. “The show last night in New York was incredible. Unfortunately on the way back I managed to fall and break my right arm pretty badly.” X-ray images of his fractured arm were included in the message, which can be seen below.

In the post he continued, “So I’m gutted to say I’ll have to reschedule the in-store signings next week. New dates will be announced very soon. Thank you for all your support and sorry to anyone who was coming next week.”

With the release of his album came news of an extensive world tour, set to kick off across North America in the early summer of 2023. The tour will find him zig-zagging across the states and into Canada before he embarks on a European leg.
