In a statement, The Charlatans said Salisbury would replace Brookes for “at least” the band's upcoming UK tour in October.
They added that it wasn't clear how long Brookes' recovery would take. The band also thanked fans "for their kind messages of support".
The Charlatans UK tour includes includes dates in Dundee (October 9), Leeds (14) and Norwich (21).
The band released their latest studio album, 'Who We Touch', last week.
