Welsh rockers Manic Street Preachers have scrapped two more concerts as frontman James Dean Bradfield battles laryngitis.
The band cancelled a show in Birmingham, England on Tuesday night (26Oct10) after the singer fell sick.
They were expected to return to the stage at London's O2 Academy Brixton on Thursday (28Oct10), but the gig has now been axed after doctors diagnosed the singer with acute laryngitis and ordered him to rest his voice.
The band's second London show on Friday (29Oct10) has also been scrapped,
Bradfield says in a statement, "I would like to personally apologise to the fans. Nothing makes us feel worse than having to postpone a show. We were particularly looking forward to playing two nights at Brixton as we have such special memories of previous gigs at this venue. To say we are gutted about this situation is putting it mildly!"
The two concerts have been rescheduled for January (11).
