80s band cancel Sheffield gig

DURAN Duran have cancelled their Sheffield Arena gig, scheduled for Saturday (June 4) after singer Simon Le Bon was advised to rest his voice by doctors.

The 80s band have cut short their UK tour, including Saturday’s Sheffield gig, while Le Bon’s “laryngeal problems” are treated.

News of the cancellation broke as this week’s Times - whose What’s On section lists them as playing on Saturday - was being printed.

Fans are advised to hold on to their tickets and can expect news of rescheduled dates within days.
