Adam Levine told to rest up as Maroon 5 cancel tour date

Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine has apologized to U.K. fans after canceling a performance due to the singer's throat problems.

The band was scheduled to play at the Echo Arena in Liverpool, England on Friday night (29May15) but axed the show just hours before they were due on stage, revealing that Levine had been ordered to "rest up" on doctor's orders to save his voice.


Levine issued a statement apologizing to U.K. fans, saying, "I am really sorry not to be able to perform tonight, but I have been told to rest up by the doctor. As a band we always want to give every performance our all and sadly I just cannot do that tonight."


He later tweeted, "Guys, I hate having to let you down tonight. My (vocal) cords are toast. We resume Sunday in Birmingham. Apologies."


The band's V Tour is slated to continue on Sunday (31May15) in Birmingham, England.
