British pop star Mika was forced to cancel his set at England's Big Chill Festival at the weekend (03-05Aug07) after he was struck down with an infection.
The Grace Kelly singer has been ordered by doctors to rest his voice for a week after coming down with an ear, nose and throat infection.
His spokesman says, "Mika has been travelling a lot because of work and has had a problem with an ear infection on and off for a while.
"He was really upset that he was not ordered to perform. But with ear, nose and throat infections, you can't take the risk. He has had to cancel a few things, but he's resting and trying to get well for all his other summer shows."
Mika is due to perform in New York later this month (10Aug07), and play a set at the British V Festival on 18 and 19 August (07).
