Three members Oasis, including Noel Gallagher, were involved in a car crash on Tuesday 6th August.
Noel, Andy Bell and keyboard player Jay Darlington were in a taxi that collided with another vehicle leaving Noel Gallagher the worst injured in downtown Indianapolis.
Noel, who was travelling in the front seat, suffered severe facial bruising and cuts from his seatbelt, Jay Darlington has had his hand strapped and will be forced to return to hospital for further treatment this week.
Both artists are said to be unfit to perform in Indianapolis and have been ordered to rest by doctors.
"Everyone seems to be absolutely fine," a spokeswoman for the band said. "Jay has got his hand strapped up but they don't think it is anything serious. It's possibly something to do with the ligament."
"It was quite a big collision but the taxi did have air bags which cushioned the impact. But we understand they are all fine".
