Hong Kong popstar Eason Chan is postponing six of his shows in the Chinese city of Chongqing until 2025 after collapsing from heatstroke while playing tennis, an accident that injured his face.

In a statement released yesterday, Chan’s management company said that the 49-year-old suffered fractures to his cheekbone and deep cuts to his cheeks, which required more than 30 stitches. The artist has been told by the doctor to spend at least three weeks recuperating. 

As a result of the accident, the company announced that the Chongqing shows of his Fear and Dream tour, which had been scheduled to take place from 14 and 16 June, as well as 21 and 23 June have been rescheduled to next year.

“We deeply apologise to all the fans who are disappointed and the inconvenience caused,” the statement read. 

According to Chan’s manager, Lisa Kan who spoke to Hong Kong media, the injuries will not leave a visible scar or affect Chan’s singing ability. In order to allow for a better recovery, Kan said that the singer had been told to refrain from talking and eating for 48 hours. 

Considered to be one of the Cantopop’s top stars, Chan is well-known for hits such as “Ten Years,” “Lonely Warrior” and “The Wanderer.”
