British rockers Beady Eye have confirmed injured guitarist Gem Archer is expected to make a full recovery and will be back on stage in November (13).
Liam Gallagher's band was forced to cancel a number of shows over the summer (13), including a high-profile slot at Britain's Virgin Media V Festival over the weekend (17-18Aug13), after Archer suffered a serious head injury.
The group has now issued an update on his condition, thanking fans for their support and insisting Archer is making good progress in his recovery.
A statement posted on the Beady Eye website reads, "A big thank you to everybody who's been in touch to give messages of support for Gem following his accident. He and his family really appreciate it and so do the band. We are gutted about all the cancelled shows but thank you for understanding that we need to prioritise our mate and his recovery.
"The good news is Gem is doing well so far and is expected to make a full recovery over the next few weeks... We are buzzing about getting back on stage for the U.K. and Ireland dates in November."
Archer reportedly suffered a fractured skull in a fall at his home. Beady Eye are due back on stage in Dublin, Ireland on 7 November (13).
