White Lies have cancelled four European tour dates after frontman Harry McVeigh was taken sick in Munich last night (November 9).

The frontman lasted four songs into the band's set at the Munich Backstage venue before having to leave the stage.

As well as the Munich date, shows at the Vienna Arena (10), Rome Piper Club (12), Milan Alcatraz (13) and Zurich Kaufleuten have been pulled. They will be rescheduled for February next year and original tickets will be valid for the new dates.

"We apologise to fans," the band said in a statement. "Unfortunately we're having to postpone these dates due to illness. Those of you in Munich on Monday night will have witnessed the problem first hand.

"These things happen. In the last 12 months we've played over 200 shows around the world and this is the first time its happened to us."
