But his dates in Birmingham have now been pulled too...

Rod Stewart has rescheduled the dates he was forced to postpone this week.

The crooner had been in the middle of a UK tour when he was struck down with a severe throat complaint that forced him to pull three consecutive nights at London’s Earl’s Court.

Rod Stewart will now honour the shows on December 9, 10, 11 at the same venue. Original tickets are still valid, but a refund can be obtained from the point of sale.

His shows in Birmingham (May 14-15) have also been pulled, and will now take place on July 16-17.
