British pop sensations La Roux have scrapped the remainder of their U.S. tour after singer Elly Jackson was told she was too ill to perform.

The Bulletproof hitmakers made the announcement on their Facebook page, revealing Jackson has pharyngitis.

The statement reads, “Her doctor has advised her to rest for three weeks so unfortunately she’ll be unable to continue with her American tour.

“We are endeavouring to reschedule as many of the cancelled shows for November as possible. An announcement will be made shortly.”
