A poorly Johnny Borrell forces the band to pull American date…

Razorlight have cancelled their LOS ANGELES gig tonight due to illness.

The band were due to play a sold out show at 800 capacity El Rey Theatre today (January 27), but the venue explained that singer Johnny Borrell has been taken ill.

“Terrible news for all Razorlight fans, I just got the word that the lead singer is sick so (the) show has been postponed,” said a recorded box office message. “We’re hoping for a March or April date so hold on to your tickets they will be good at the postponed date.”

Razorlight are still currently scheduled to perform on American chat show ‘Craig Kilborn’s The Late Late Show’ on Friday (January 28), but in the light of the LA cancellation this now looks doubtful.

The band are also due to undertake a massive UK tour next month.
