The injury to Beady Eye rocker Gem Archer that prompted the band to pull the plug on gigs in Belgium and Japan over the weekend (03-04Aug13) has been described as a severe head trauma.

The former Oasis star was reportedly involved in an accident on Thursday evening (01Aug13) and he is currently in a hospital in stable condition.

Updates are imminent, but his wife Lou has already taken to to thank fans for their support. In a post on Sunday (04Aug13), she wrote, "Thanks for all your support and well wishes during this awful time. I know he will appreciate it. Hopefully he'll be back on his feet soon."

Beady Eye have scrapped a show at the Lokerse Festival in Belgium on Monday (05Aug13) and a performance at the Summer Sonic event in Tokyo, Japan this coming weekend (10Aug13) to allow Archer time to rest.

The band's sets at the upcoming V Festival in England are still scheduled to go ahead.
