NASHVILLE, Tenn. » A publicist for Jack White says the rocker is canceling his remaining tour dates in Mexico after the death of his band’s keyboard player Isaiah "Ikey" Owens.

The statement said Owens, 38, died Tuesday morning in Mexico. Owens was from Long Beach, California, but had recently moved to Nashville, Tennessee, to perform with White’s band.

The band was scheduled to perform in Guadalajara on Tuesday and Monterrey on Wednesday.

Owens also played in other bands, including Mars Volta and Free Moral Agents. "We will all miss you Ikey," the band said in a statement. "You were and are an incredible artist."
