STRICKEN RAZORLIGHT STAR HEADS BACK TO UK
Razorlight singer JOHNNY BORRELL is heading back to the UK after falling ill with laryngitis while in the US.


A spokesperson for the band told NME.COM that Borrell began to feel sick after the band’s show in Denver (January 22).


The singer’s condition progressively worsened as the group trekked through shows in San Diego and Phoenix earlier this week. After seeing a doctor in Phoenix, Borrell was diagnosed with laryngitis and prescribed a round of antibiotics to fight the throat infection. He flew back to Britain last night and under the advice of the physician has been ordered to rest his voice and not speak.


As a result of Borrell’s laryngitis, Razorlight were forced to cancel their final US tour date which was scheduled for last night (January 27) in Los Angeles, and two television appearances.


Razorlight’s spokesperson said Borrell is expected to recover soon and the UK tour is going ahead as scheduled.
