Duran Duran - Duran Duran Scrap Another Show As Nick Rhodes Battles Illness

British pop stars Duran Duran have axed another gig after doctors told keyboardist Nick Rhodes he is not yet well enough to get back on stage.
The group axed two shows over the weekend (25-26Aug12), in Atlantic City, New Jersey and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, but had hoped to resume the tour in Kettering, Ohio on Tuesday (28Aug12).
However, the band has now cancelled the Ohio show too, on doctors' orders.
A statement posted on the Duran Duran website reads, "Following the loss of their last two dates, in Pittsburgh and Atlantic City, Duran Duran, have announced that they are being forced to cancel (Tuesday night's) performance in Kettering, Ohio, at the Fraze Pavilion, due to keyboardist, Nick Rhodes' continued illness.
"Rhodes, who has been unwell for the past week now, has been advised by doctors today that he is not yet ready to perform, as he is still experiencing the same symptoms that have kept him from the stage for the last few nights.
"The band members are all extremely disappointed, as this is the final leg of their world tour and more than anything, they hate to disappoint their fans. Duran Duran are looking at whether it will be possible to reschedule the show within the next few days."
