The casino, who got the news about the cancellation at 7 pm Saturday, reported that Rhodes has been sick for a few says and saw a doctor Saturday who advised him not to perform Saturday night. In a news release, Rhodes said doctors told him he could be suffering from exhaustion.
The Revel staff said depending on the band's other commitments and Rhodes' condition, the band is considering playing the show in the next few days and fans should hold onto their tickets and wait for an official announcement of a re-scheduled date.
"I have struggled through the last few nights, hoping that I could simply work through this," Rhodes said. "But today I felt so unwell, I had to see a doctor." "We absolutely hate to disappoint our incredibly loyal fans and cancel a show at the last minute, but unfortunately the doctor has strongly recommended that this is what we do on this occasion. So it is with enormous regret that we are unable to perform in Atlantic City tonight," Rhodes said.
8/26/12 UPDATE- Also cancelled are 8/26 in Pittsburgh, PA and 8/27 in Kettering, OH. Duran Duran’s next show is scheduled for August 29 in Highland Park, IL, at the Ravinia Festival at Ravinia Park
