Sick Tom Odell scraps Rolling Stones warm-up set

British singer Tom Odell pulled out of a support slot at The Rolling Stones’ show in London on Saturday (13Jul13) after he was diagnosed with a chest infection. The star was set to warm up the crowd in Hyde Park before the Brown Sugar hitmakers’ headlining set, but he axed the slot just hours before he was set to take to the stage.
In a series of posts on his page, he writes, “I’m so f**cking gutted to announce that I can’t play… I was so excited, I’ve been thinking about it for months…
“But I’ve been hit by a pretty bad chest infection… so frustrating. Anyway, I hope you all enjoy the Stones, sure they’ll be amazing.”
