Duran Duran have postponed the remaining dates on their UK tour after singer Simon Le Bon was told to rest his voice while he is treated for ongoing throat problems.

The dates in Bournemouth, Cardiff, Manchester and Sheffield are to be rescheduled and the band have advised fans to hold on to tickets.

Duran Duran have already postponed gigs in London, Newcastle and Brighton.

Le Bon said he had been told "to hold off for about another week".

In a statement on the band's offical website, he said: "I know how difficult this has been for all of the fans, as we've been postponing shows with very little notice, in the hope each day that the improvement would have been significant enough for me to sing again without risking any long-term damage."

"I am now focussing on getting back for Berlin - which is on June 8th."
