Courteney Cox is "happy to be taking care" of her partner, Snow Patrol musician Johnny McDaid, while he recovers from surgery.

The band announced last week that they had been forced to cancel a series of concerts after McDaid (42)  suffered "a serious problem with his neck".

It was the latest injury problem to plague the band after guitarist Nathan Connnolly sustained a hand injury.

The Friends star shared a picture with Johnny, who was wearing a neck brace, on Instagram. "Happy to be taking care of my man....I’M HIS NUMBER ONE FAN!" Cox wrote on Instagram.

"Johnny has sooo many platinum discs, now he has two made of titanium. Thank you @drtoddlanman for your incredible work. #onthemend #misery."

Dr. Todd Lanman is a world-renowned Beverly Hills-based spinal neurosurgeon and artificial disc replacement innovator.

Celebrities and fans sent well-wishes to McDaid on the Instagram post.

American actress and director Busy Philipps commented, "Get better soon Johnny!"

Actor Justin Theroux told his friend, "Feel better Johnny McDeee!"

Snow Patrol have cancelled all forthcoming shows billed to play in Europe this summer up to Latitude on July 20th to give McDaid and Connolly time to recover.

The band are hoping to be back on the road for an acoustic tour of Asia, Australia and New Zealand in August.

"We have hardly ever cancelled shows in 25 years together and we don’t do it lightly. We hope you all understand. We are sorry to miss the shows but health is the most important thing. All our love and healing to our brothers Johnny and Nathan," the band said in a statement.
