Phoenix Cancel iTunes Festival Performance After Thomas Mars Falls Sick


Phoenix will cancel their iTunes Festival performance scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 7, following lead singer Thomas Mars falling ill. The band announced the news Friday via Twitter.

Ireland-based indie group Little Green Cars was slated to open for Phoenix. The band members said they were "gutted" by the news of the cancellation.

No specific notice of Mars' condition has been made public. The festival will not replace Phoenix's slot on the lineup, but will instead return Sunday with previously planned performers Bastille and The 1975.
