Billy Idol’s first two show of his tour have been canceled over an infection.
Idol was supposed to kick off his tour at the New Orleans House of Blues with a second show in Atlanta, but those shows have been postponed. Reps for the 80s rocker announced the following on his website Tuesday.
“We regret to announce that the first two shows of Billy’s North American tour, in New Orleans on Wednesday, January 21 and in Atlanta on Thursday, January 22, will be postponed. Billy, is unfortunately suffering from a pesky chest infection and is on doctor’s orders to recover for a few days before hitting the stage again.” h/t wgno
In an official statement, the rocker said, “I’m really disappointed to be missing everyone this week in the Big Easy and Atlanta. I was excited for these gigs but want to make sure I can give you the full on Idol rock show you deserve. Thank you for understanding while I get over this bug. We’ll be back later this year!”
