David Bowie cancels his Danish date

From Associated Press

David Bowie canceled his planned performance at Denmark’s annual Roskilde Festival, one of Europe’s biggest outdoor rock events.

“This morning David Bowie’s physician informed us that [his] condition doesn’t enable him to carry through the planned concert,” the festival said in a statement Tuesday. No other details were available.

A statement on Bowie’s website said the cancellation was “due to David’s continued condition.” He had been scheduled to perform Friday.

Last week, Bowie cut short a concert in Prague because of pain in his shoulder.


Earlier this month in Oslo, he was struck in the eye by a lollipop thrown from a concert crowd, but he wasn’t injured.
