Duran Duran canceled Saturday night's Atlantic City show at the last minute due to the illness of keyboardist Nick Rhodes.
An announcement posted on the band's website Saturday said that Rhodes had been sick for the past few days, and that doctors had advised him not to perform that night at the Revel Ovation Hall.
"Rhodes, who along with the rest of the band, has now been on the road for almost two years in support of their latest All You Need Is Now album, has been experiencing an array of symptoms that doctors believe could be the result of exhaustion," the statement said.
"I have struggled through the last few nights, hoping that I could simply work through this, but today I felt so unwell I had to see a doctor," Rhodes says in the statement. "We absolutely hate to disappoint our incredibly loyal fans and cancel a show at the last minute, but unfortunately the doctor has strongly recommended that this is what we do on this occasion – so it is with enormous regret that we are unable to perform in Atlantic City tonight."
The band says that it is hoping to reschedule the show within the next few days.
