The Billy Idol concert scheduled for Wednesday, Jan. 21, at the House of Blues has been postponed. The British singer’s Thursday show in Atlanta is also postponed.
Idol, a House of Blues release stated, is suffering from a chest infection. He’s been told by a doctor to recover for a few days before taking the stage again.
“I’m really disappointed to be missing everyone this week in the Big Easy and Atlanta,” Idol said in a statement. “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!”
The Idol tour’s promoter advised tickets holders for the New Orleans and Atlanta shows to keep their tickets until information about the rescheduled dates becomes available.
All other shows on Idol’s tour, beginning with the Jan. 24 show at the Tower Theatre in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania, will go on as planned.
