Duran Duran cancels remaining world tour dates
Duran Duran has canceled the final three shows of their two-year world tour, citing the decline of keyboardist Nick Rhodes' health.
The iconic English outfit canceled four U.S. shows earlier this week and have now canceled the last three gigs: Aug. 29 in Highland Park, IL, and their two-night closing (8/31-9/1) in Orillia, Ontario.
Ticketholders can receive a refund at the point of purchase, according to the band's website.
Rhodes has been "unwell for over a week," according to a press release and doctors have told the keyboardist that he's not yet well enough to perform. Rhodes is suffering from exhaustion or a possible viral infection, according to the Huffington Post.
Duran Duran most recently unveiled "All You Need Is Now," the group's 13th studio effort early last year. The collection peaked at No. 29 on The Billboard 200 and at No. 7 on the magazine's Rock Albums and Alternative Albums charts.
