Duran Duran cancel third US gig
Tuesday 28 August 2012
Duran Duran have cancelled a third consecutive American concert after a band-member contracted a suspected viral illness.
Keyboard player Nick Rhodes, who has been unwell since last week, was told by doctors not to play in Pittsburgh and Atlantic City over the weekend. Today he confirmed that tonight's gig in Ohio will not go ahead either.
"Having seen the doctor again first thing this morning, I have been told that I need to continue to rest, pending further tests," Rhodes told the BBC.
Ticket holders have been advised to hold onto their tickets pending announcements of further concert dates.
The 1980s chart-topping band are approaching the end of their two-year tour for All You Need Is Now.
In a statement on their website the band expressed "extreme disappointment" and said they are looking at whether it will be possible to reschedule the show within the next few days.
