Thom Yorke Cancels Gigs Due To Illness

Radiohead have been forced to cancel the final show of their Australian tour, as singer Thom Yorke has lost his voice due to a severe inflammation of his vocal chords, throwing the band’s headlining show at the Coachella Festival into doubt.

Radiohead barely completed the first of two nights at the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Australia on Monday (April 26), with Yorke’s voice noticeably cracking during the performance.

The band only played one encore with the frontman finishing the set by saying, "Sorry about the throat, we almost nearly cancelled tonight. Please forgive or kiss my throat frog".

As a result the second show at the venue tonight (April 27) has been cancelled. A statement released by tour promoter Michael Chugg and Radiohead manager Bryce Edge reads,

"Lead singer Thom Yorke was examined by an ear, nose and throat specialist in Melbourne after developing significant loss of vocal quality and volume at the first Radiohead concert in Melbourne Monday night. Thom was barely able to finish the concert".

"Today he has a marked hoarseness of voice and a significant upper airway infection and heavy inflammation of his vocal chords. If he was to sing in the next few days he would cause irreparable damage to his vocal ability in the future. Consequently and regrettably we have to cancel tonight's show. Tickets can be refunded at point of purchase".

Radiohead’s next live date is set to be a headlining slot at the Coachella Festival in the US on May 1 alongside The Cure, Kraftwerk, Pixies, The Flaming Lips amongst others. It is not know whether Yorke’s illness will affect their appearance.
---------------------------------

I'm only laughing because I never got a chance to buy my ticket before it sold out. Oh man, there's going to be many angry people if they do end up canceling.

The Pixies will most certainly play more SOCal shows in smaller venues, so instead of driving two hours to see one band in the desert for $200 do small show.. I'll just chill.

I actually don't care(having seen them five times in the past three years), and am somewhat looking forward to them cancelling. That means extended sets by The Pixies and others. :rockon:

(I hope)

i don't think anyone is going to be selling tix cheap b/c of this Radiohead issue. even if they were to cancel, it's going to be last minute..and everyone will be there at the show already anyhow.

the Pixies will rock the place regardless.

p.s. I PICKED UP 2 2DAY PASSES @ COST :mrpimp:
