LATEST: Legendary rocker David Bowie left his French fans devastated last night (12NOV03) when a debilitating bout of laryngitis forced him to axe another gig.

Problems for the LIFE ON MARS singer - who's on his REALITY WORLD TOUR - began in Nice on Monday (10NOV03) when he walked off stage after losing his voice mid-performance, and fans with tickets for last night's concert in Toulouse were also left disappointed after learning Bowie was still suffering with the illness.

But there's good news for anxious concert-goers, with a statement on the star's website explaining he hopes to be recovered in time for his date in Marseille tomorrow (14NOV03).

Bowie is due to return to his native Britain on Monday (17NOV03) for eight dates in UK and Ireland.
