Berry In 'Perfect' Health
LATEST: A representative for CHUCK BERRY has denied the rock legend is suffering from ill health - putting a string of cancelled shows down to "contractual problems".
The Johnny B. Goode star was due to play in the Spanish coastal town of Estepona on Saturday (26Jul08) and in Leon on Sunday (27Jul08).
But the 81 year old scrapped the dates just one hour before he was expected onstage on Saturday, infuriating the gigs' organisers and the thousands of fans who had turned out for the show.
The last-minute cancellation sparked fears the musician was unwell.
But a spokesperson for the star has dismissed the rumours, telling website TMZ.com that Berry's health is "perfect" and attributing the scrapped shows to "contractual and financial problems" with the Spanish organisers.
