Robert Plant isn’t feeling so sensational. He and his band, The Sensational Space Shifters, have called off tonight’s show at the Meadow Brook Music Festival in Rochester Hills, Mich., due to illness. The band had previously postponed its June 7 date in Toronto to Sept. 15.

“Sunday morning I woke up with a flu that’s developed into laryngitis,” Plant said. “I’m really disappointed as I’ve only missed 1 gig in 15 years and now here’s two in a row. It’s heartbreaking. I’m furious, frustrated and silent.”

The show is being postponed to Sept. 10. Unfortunately, The Pixies can’t make the new date because of scheduling conflicts. A new support artist will be announced.

Tickets will be honored in September. Otherwise, refunds will be available at point of purchase. Visit RobertPlant.com for more information. 

Meanwhile, Tony Bennett has also nixed Tuesday’s show because of illness. He was supposed to play the second of two nights at London’s Royal Albert Hall with Lady Gaga.  

Sorry to not be singing in London tonight,” Bennett tweeted. “I love my fans in the UK and appreciate all the well wishes to get over this flu quickly.”
