David Bowie Cancels Appearance At Roskilde

British rocker David Bowie's battles with shoulder pains have forced him to cancel his planned performance at Denmark's annual Roskilde FESTIVAL.

Last week (ends25JUN04), Bowie cut short a concert in Prague, Czech Republic, because of pain in his shoulder. Earlier this month (JUN04) in Oslo, Norway, he was struck in the eye by a lollipop thrown from the crowd, but wasn't hurt.

Organisers of the festival say in a statement, "This morning David Bowie's physician informed us that (his) condition doesn't enable him to carry through the planned concert."

A statement on Bowie's website says the cancellation is "due to David's continued condition".

Bowie was scheduled to perform on Friday (02JUL04), the first day of four-day outdoor event.

An estimated 40,000 fans will see more than 150 artists on Roskilde's six stages, including The Pixies, Morrissey, Sahara Hotnights and Avril Lavigne.
