British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran has just announced the cancellation of his upcoming concert in Jakarta, which was scheduled to be held on Nov. 9, following a cycling accident in London last week.

In a video uploaded on his official Facebook account, Sheeran apologized to his fans and said it was a difficult decision to make. “I hope everyone understands this,” Sheeran said. “We’re going to work pretty hard to come back and believe me when I say I really, really do want to come back.”

According to the concert's official ticketing partner, Book My Show, those who purchased tickets will get a refund starting on Nov. 3.

In addition to Jakarta, Sheeran also cancelled his shows in Taiwan, South Korea and Hong Kong. The singer of “Perfect” and “Lego House” plans to return touring for his show in Singapore on Nov. 11. (kes)
