Billy Idol cancels live dates due to sinus infection

Billy Idol has cancelled a pair of upcoming performances as he continues to recover from recent sinus infection surgery.

The rocker – who recently pulled out of a North American tour with Journey due to the health issue – has alerted fans of his plans via social media.

"Due to my continued sinusitis infection, I'm disappointed to announce that I must cancel my appearance at both Shaky Knees in Atlanta on April 29 and at Hard Rock Live in Florida on May 1,” explains Idol. “When we confirmed these shows I was sure that I would have recovered in time to play, but unfortunately this infection has proven pesky and lingering, requiring some more time before I get back out on the stage.

"To all the fans who were looking forward to these gigs, I'm very sorry to miss them. Cancelling shows is not something I do casually. We'll no doubt come back to Georgia and Florida another time soon. Sincerely, BFI."

Idol is next scheduled to begin a UK tour in Glasgow in June.
