Singer Karen O has bronchitis...

Yeah Yeah Yeahs have cancelled shows in the US because singer KAREN O has bronchitis.

The group are currently touring with Sleater-Kinney. However, two dates, in Philadelphia and Washington have been pulled, due to the singer’s illness.

A statement on the band’s website apologises for the cancellation, saying “we are figuring out ways to make it up to everyone ASAP”.

They are due to resume touring on Wednesday (October 23) in Cleveland, playing gigs until the end of the month on a co-headline tour with The Liars.
