Royal Blood have postponed their tour dates due to singer Mike Kerr's illness
Royal Blood have postponed more tour dates due to illness.
The rock duo - made up of Mike Kerr and Ben Thatcher - have been forced to pull out of more shows in mainland Europe after Mike fell ill with "severe tonsilitus".
According to NME, the pair - who previously cancelled shows in Portsmouth, Oxford and Bristol - have now been forced to pull out of gigs in Milan, Barcelona, Lisbon and Madrid, following "medical advice".
They released a statement saying: "Customers are advised to retain their tickets and await further information with regard to rescheduled dates which will be planned and announced as quickly as possible. We wish to sincerely apologise to all ticket holders for the inconvenience and disappointment this has caused."
The band's missed UK tour dates have now been rescheduled for December and early January.
Royal Blood have also signed up to support Foo Fighters during their UK stadium tour next summer.
Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl recently admitted he was "genuinely excited" by the band.
He said: "I saw some live footage of them, and I was so excited to see a band that was heavy, had riffs, had songs, and could really perform, and an audience that was genuinely excited to watch them play."
