Robert Plant postpones Chicago show due to illness

Robert Plant has postponed his June 10 Chicago show at the FirstMerit Bank Pavilion due to an ongoing illness.

It’s Plant’s third postponement this week as battles laryngitis.

“I’m not used to this,” says the singer. “I just want to keep on doing what I set out to do when I first came to America — give 140% every night and be the best I can be at every show. It’s maddening and frustrating to realize I can’t do that right now. But I’ll be back."

Tickets will be honored for the new date of Wednesday, September 23.

Refunds are available at point of purchase until June 19 in the event ticket holders are unable to make the new date, which will not include The Pixies as openers; a new support act will be announced.

The Chicago concert is the third in a row affected by Plant’s illness: he postponed a June 7 concert in Toronto when the health issue first flared up on Sunday, followed by a postponement of his June 9 date in Detroit.

The singer’s next scheduled show is June 12 at the Mud Island Amphitheatre in Memphis, TN.

Plant is in the middle of a 4-week spring tour of North America in support of “lullaby and...The Ceaseless Roar.”
