Rock icon Slash has been forced to postpone a concert in Los Angeles on Wednesday night (03Oct12) after singer and collaborator Myles Kennedy fell ill.

The vocalist, who features on Slash's new album with The Conspirators, Apocalyptic Love, had been scheduled to perform with the former Guns N' Roses guitarist at The Wiltern, but they have now pushed the show back to December (12).

Apologising to fans, Slash says, "We want to be 100 per cent for this gig and we're just not at this moment. We'll be back December 2nd in fighting form. See you then!"

And Kennedy adds, "My apologies to everyone who was planning on coming out to the show tonight. I promise to make it up to you when we return in a few months."
