Rockers Muse have been forced to cancel a show in Brazil due to illness.

The British band was scheduled to perform at Sao Paulo's Grand Metropole on Thursday (03Apr14), but scrapped the concert on Wednesday (02Apr14).

A statement posted on the group's website reads: "It is with great sadness that we have to cancel the show tomorrow (Thursday 3rd April) at Grand Metropole here in Sao Paulo due to illness."

The rockers are still scheduled to appear this weekend (05-06Apr14) at Sao Paulo's Lollapalooza festival and they're determined to make it to the stage.

The bandmates add, "It is our hope that with the additional rest, we will be able to assure the Lollapalooza show on Saturday goes ahead as planned."

The trio is also booked to play the two weekends of the Coachella festival in California later this month (Apr14).
