Duran Duran, a British rock band that gained popularity in the 1980s, has canceled its Saturday performance at Revel’s Ovation Hall. The band’s keyboardist, Nick Rhodes, was told by doctors that he should not perform after experiencing symptoms believed to have been the result of exhaustion, Duran Duran’s publicist said in a statement issued Saturday.
“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 said 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."
Ticketholders should hold onto their tickets until further notice as the band is looking into whether the show can be rescheduled. An announcement is expected within the next few days, according to the statement.
The band has been on the road for two years promoting their latest album, “All You Need is Now.”
