‘Duran Duran’ Scraps Shows As Band Member Still Fights Health Problems!

English New Wave band, Duran Duran had to scrap another show as Nick Rhodes is battling an illness. The problem is keyboardist Nick Rhodes is still not well enough to hit the stage yet.

Just this past weekend (25-26Aug12) the band had to axe two shows in Atlantic City, New Jersey and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, but had hopes of the tour going on in Kettering, Ohio on Tuesday (28Aug12). However that is not possible.

A statement posted on the Duran Duran web site 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, 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.”
