Singer John Farnham has cancelled two shows in Australia after falling sick with a throat infection.
The English-born rocker, who grew up Down Under, kicked off his Australian tour last week (ends09Oct11) to mark 25 years since the release of his Whispering Jack album.
However, the star has been forced to postpone two shows in Sydney, on Tuesday (11Oct11) and Wednesday (12Oct11), due to ill health.
A statement posted on the star's website reads, "John Farnham's first two sell out 'Whispering Jack - 25 Years On' Sydney shows, at the State Theatre (on) Tuesday and Wednesday this week, are to be postponed due to a throat infection. This decision was made following John's doctor's advice."
Her parents weren't too fond of the idea.
The Brits teamed up at the Hollywood Rose Bowl to perform a cover of The Purple One's 'Nothing Compares 2 U'.
