Rocker Jack White has pulled out of performing the new James Bond theme tune at the MTV Europe Music Awards after injuring his neck.
The star had been slated to sing the Quantum Of Solace track, Another Way To Die, with Alicia Keys at the ceremony in Liverpool, England next month (Nov08), as a top secret headline act.
But a slipped disc in his neck - sustained whilst on tour with The Raconteurs in the U.S. last month (Sep08) - has resulted in the pair's performance being axed.
The injury also throws promotional activity for the new Bond theme tune into turmoil, as doctors have advised White not to travel.
A source tells Britain's The Sun, “Jack’s still in a lot of pain. He hoped it would have cleared by now but the injury is refusing to heal.
“MTV are disappointed, as are Bond film chiefs. No one knows when he’ll be fit enough to travel again.”
