Kiefer Sutherland had to cancel three performances in Denmark and Sweden after slipping on the stairs in a bus and injuring his ribs.

The actor-turned-singer was on his way to a show in Denmark when the accident happened, according to Billboard.

Sutherland posted a note to social media Thursday apologizing for the missed shows and promising that he would make them up.

“Sadly I slipped on steps on the bus whilst travelling [sic] to Denmark and seriously injured a rib, making it difficult to breathe and impossible to sing,” he posted.

“Regretfully, I will not be able to perform the last 3 shows of our tour, but have every intension [sic] of making up these shows in September / October when we return.

“I am so sorry for any inconvenience that I have caused to the fans who have bought tickets. I will do everything I can to make it up to you.”

On Sunday he posted a note of thanks to his fans with a clip of a cat falling on a flight of stairs.

Sutherland released his album, “Reckless & Me,” in April and has been touring since. In June he played a show at Jergel’s Rhythm Grill in Warrendale.

Before his Jergel’s show he spoke about his music career and how he came to love writing and performing country music.

“Songwriting is very much the same thing. I found a genre of music where I was allowed to write a pretty direct lyric. It’s the way I wanted to write,” he said.

He is scheduled to continue his tour in September and October in Europe.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
