Quo postpone concert after Rossi falls ill.

VETERAN rockers Status Quo have been forced to postpone a concert this weekend after frontman Francis Rossi became ill, the band's manager said.

A statement from the band said the singer and guitarist had been diagnosed with laryngitis and had been unwell when he took to the stage to perform at Glastonbury Festival on Friday night.

The band said: "Francis was feeling unwell even before the band played a fantastically well-received headline set on the Acoustic stage at Glastonbury, but after that show it was obvious that there was a problem.

The band were due to perform today in Norwich. The concert will now go ahead in November.

This was the band's first tour following the death of guitarist Rick Parfitt in December last year.

Parfitt died, aged 68, after suffering a severe infection while in a Spanish hospital, which he had visited due to complications with a shoulder injury.
