Modern day guitar hero and renowned astrophysicist Brian May has been forced to cancel his remaining tour dates in 2016 owing to what he describes as "a persistent illness." Writing on his site May stated:

"We're very sad today to announce the indefinite postponement of our 'candlelight' concert dates this coming December.

This is a decision I've agonized over, but in the end it has become inevitable.

I managed to complete the recent Queen and Adam Lambert dates in Asia but I have been increasingly battling wit a persistent illness which is destroying my energy and my will.

I am now at the point where I don't feel confident to perform the scheduled shows to the standard we all expect.

I've been strongly advised to rest and heal, rather than go out and risk 'falling down on the job' out there, which would be a real tragedy.

I'm convinced it's much better taking the step to cancel the dates now, refunding the fans for the ticket sales, and giving all our team a chance to re-plan their time in December.

Sincere apologies to all,- Bri"
