Kiefer Sutherland suffered a serious injury after he slipped on the steps of a bus during his country music tour in Europe.

The actor turned singer, 52, took to Instagram to tell fans about the incident.

“Sadly I slipped on the stairs of the bus whilst traveling to Denmark and seriously injured a rib, making it difficult to breathe and impossible to sing,” Sutherland wrote.

“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.”

Sutherland added, “I am so sorry for any inconvenience that I have caused to the fans who bought tickets. I will do everything I can to make it up to you. Thank you for your understanding. Sincerely, Kiefer."

He later informed followers on Instagram that make up dates in September will be announced soon for Denmark and Sweden.

As RadarOnline.com readers know, Sutherland has been touring for his new country album called "Reckless & Me."

The former 24 actor previously told PEOPLE, “Music was something that I became really seriously attached to as a really young person because I had an older brother who I idolized and he was the biggest music fan in the world.”

Inn 2016, Sutherland released his first album, "Down in a Hole."

But his touring experience has been bizarre.

A source recently told gossip writer A.J. Benza for his Radar Fame column that the Designated Survivor star will not allow bandmates to use his tour bus toilet while on the road!

“It’s off limits to anyone doing serious business,” the insider told Fame. “Kiefer likes the bus to smell nice.”

Instead, Sutherland has had the guys with him on the country tour use the facilities at McDonald’s at various truck stops, the source claimed.

The star has hit headlines for his history with booze that includes a 2007 DUI arrest.

Sutherland pleaded no contest to the DUI charge and was sentenced to 48 days in jail.

In May 2009, Sutherland surrendered to the NYPD for head-butting fashion designer Jack McCollough.

But Sutherland and McCollough soon issued a joint statement in which the actor apologized. Police later dropped the charges against Sutherland.

An insider told Radar that his music mentor Tom Petty's death last year has halted Sutherland's wild ways.

"Tom's demise has been a wake-up call for him, and he hasn’t put down his guitar— or picked up a bottle — since.”
