Duran Duran were forced to cancel five shows on their European tour last week while frontman Simon Le Bon underwent an MRI scan in an attempt to diagnose an ongoing vocal problem.

Announcing the news last week, Le Bon said via Twitter: “Very sad to announce that our Paris, Den Haag, Brussels, Copenhagen and Stockholm shows are cancelled, to be re-scheduled at a later date. This is due to a continuing voice problem that I have been experiencing. There has been a little improvement to my voice in the last three weeks. There is obviously some underlying problem which is not shown by laryngoscopy”.

After undergoing the scan, he told fans: “I managed to forget my house keys which were in my pocket as I went into the MRI scanner. They flew past my nose as if fired from a gun”.

The band hope to continue the tour in Helsinki on 18 Jun.
