His injury could play a bit part in if he is is able to perform at his upcoming shows in Asia, where he has several planned.  He is scheduled to begin on October 22 in Taipei, followed by appearances in Osaka, Seoul in South Korea, Tokyo in Japan, Hong Kong, the Philippines, Indonesia and Singapore, before heading to Malaysia and Thailand in mid-November.

There has been no word yet about the upcoming tour dates, however it will be difficult for Ed to perform given that he plays the guitar right-handed, and his right arm is in a plaster cast.
