Duran Duran have nixed the remaining dates of their world tour after keyboardist Nick Rhode fell ill and failed to recover quickly.
Doctors for Rhodes feel that is not well enough to get back to work and the group has canceled two dates in Ontario on Friday and Saturday.
The "Hungry Like the Wolf" hitsmiths posted a note on their website, which read as follows: "With just one week to go before the final dates of their two year All You Need Is Now world tour… Duran Duran have been forced to cancel the remaining shows on the concluding North American leg, because keyboardist Nick Rhodes is too unwell to perform… Rhodes, who has been unwell now for over a week, was advised by doctors… 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 are devastated that what has been a triumphant tour for them… has ended this way – and know that the fans will be as disappointed as they are. Nick held out all week, hoping that he would be well enough to perform again for these final few shows, but unfortunately the medical advice he has been given today requires him to continue to rest."
Get better, Nick!
