Veteran rocker Rod Stewart has postponed a London concert tonight (09MAY05) after falling ill with a throat infection.

The MAGGIE MAY star, 60, is under doctor's orders to rest his voice until his next show on Wednesday (11MAY05) at the British capital's Earls Court venue.

His spokesman says, "Rod Stewart has been forced to postpone his first London engagement at Earls Court tonight because of a severe viral throat infection."

Stewart is no stranger to throat infections - in 2002 he was forced to pull several gigs after developing an illness.
