Funnyman Russell Brand has scrapped three British shows shows so he can recover from a throat infection.
The comic actor's performances at the Hammersmith Apollo and the Clyde Auditorium in Glasgow, Scotland have been rescheduled after Brand was told to rest his voice by doctors.
In a written statement, released late on Friday night (13Feb09), Brand said, "I will make it up to everyone at the rescheduled gigs... I'm in bed, very confused, at the specialist's insistence. I'm alone - except for the cat, who I'm thinking of putting a bikini on - it must be the fever!"
