Six to eight weeks for a minor fracture to heal, six months for a major one, according to NHS direct..

Though knowing Dave if he can play in a wheelchair he will.
Would of thought it is a minor break or they wouldn't let him back on stage?

I'm not saying any time would be convenient but it's truly unfortunate timing with Wembley x2, Glastonbury & the 4th of July bash all within the month.

You'd think if it was serious they'd just take him to hospital, but he's got a medic at his feet so who knows?

I don't think they spent enough time looking to be able to tell.

He also might need surgery to set leg, depending on how bad it's broken. We'll just have to wait and see and watch for an official announcement.

I doubt he'll need that, because I doubt he'd have been able to continue if he needs surgery.. those are the serious fractures, if he does needs surgery, I've know idea how he's finished that show...

Posted this on my Facebook when I heard about it,

Had to delete it, I feel so fucking bad for the guy. The YouTube video in which he basically cancels the show is just horrible to watch.

Not always. It all depends on what is broken. A little chunk off of your talus bone is enough to require surgery (and people still hobble around on it)

Like Simon said, official statement tomorrow so let's just wait and see
