Jewel sustained a broken collarbone and first rib, as well as bruises. She has been treated by an orthopedic surgeon and, fortunately, her injuries are not life-threatening or permenant.

According to a press release, Jewel still plans on making her European tour, which is scheduled to begin May 10 in Italy. According to her doctor, she should be able to sing within two weeks, although it will be four to six weeks before she can play guitar.

In the meantime, Jewel’s guitar parts will be played by her band. Jewel should be able to resume her strumming in time for the opening of her North American tour on June 12.

While she is hoping to make her overseas commitments, Jewel’s April 17 appearance at Fan Nation 2 in Irvine, Calif., has been called off. She was to debut her new single “Break Me” from her album This Way.
