La Roux postpone Ritz Ybor concert due to illness
Noooo! One of the shows we were most looking forward to in August, British dance-pop act La Roux at the Ritz Ybor on Aug. 3, is being postponed.
According to promoters No Clubs Productions, La Roux had to pull out "due to unknown illness." La Roux had to pull out of a Chicago Lilith Fair show on Saturday due to what Sarah McLachlan called "laryngitis." Singer Elly Jackson's explanation, via Twitter:
My deepest apologies to everyone @ Lillith Fair in Chicago... I was diagnosed with accute pharingitis on friday morning and have been in bed ... Ever since as I was told I wasn't to sing till at least tuesday and was banned from flying for 48 hours ... I have been feeling ill for a while now and battling with throat problems all year but now I've picked up an infection and I need to rest.. ... I'm truly sorry, especially to those of you who drove such a long way. We will come back In november I promise Elly xx
The group is looking to reschedule the show for sometime in November. Tickets purchased for August will be honored in November; refunds are also available at point of purchase.
