Despite sustaining a broken collarbone, a broken rib, and bruises after being thrown from a colt, singer/songwriter Jewel plans to go ahead with her planned European tour.

Despite sustaining a broken collarbone, a broken rib, and bruises after being thrown from a colt, singer/songwriter Jewel plans to go ahead with her planned European tour. As previously reported, the artist was injured Wednesday while riding a horse at the Texas ranch of her boyfriend, rodeo star Ty Murray.

Jewel has canceled tomorrow's (April 27) appearance at the second annual Fan Nation concert in Irvine, Calif. The event will go on as planned with previously announced participants Sheryl Crow, the Goo Goo Dolls, Ryan Adams, John Mayer, and Five For Fighting.

According to Jewel's doctor, she should be able to sing within two weeks, but it will be four to six weeks before she can play guitar again. For the European tour, slated to kick off May 10 in Cortemaggiore, Italy, her guitar parts will be performed by a member of her band, according to a statement from her label, Atlantic Records.

If she heals as expected, Jewel should be able to resume playing guitar for her North American tour, which will get underway June 14 in Tampa, Fla., with labelmates M2M in tow. A full recovery is expected within 12 weeks, according to the label.

Jewel will be touring in support of her latest Atlantic album, "This Way." Released last December, the set debuted at No. 5 on Billboard's Top Internet Albums chart and No. 9 on The Billboard 200. The set has sold nearly 1.2 million copies in the U.S. to date, according to SoundScan.

The album's lead single, "Standing Still," reached nine of Billboard's charts, peaking at No. 3 on the Adult Top 40 chart, No. 19 on the Adult Contemporary chart, and No. 25 on the Hot 100. The album's second single will be the track "Break Me."
