Glam rockers The Darkness have pulled out of a music festival in Japan this weekend - because frontman Justin Hawkins is suffering from exhaustion.

The band were scheduled to perform at the SUMMERSONIC festival in Osaka on Sunday (8AUG04), but have cancelled their gig to give Hawkins the chance to recuperate.

According to reports, the singer has become run-down because of The Darkness' hectic tour schedule.
