British rockers the Arctic Monkeys have postponed a third date on their U.K. tour as frontman Alex Turner continues to battle laryngitis. The I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor hitmakers were forced to pull out of a Halloween gig in Birmingham, England at late notice on Thursday (31Oct13), while they also scrapped a second show scheduled for Glasgow, Scotland on Friday (01Nov13). The band was expected to resume the concerts this weekend (02Nov13) in its native Sheffield, England, but now that homecoming gig has been axed too. A statement posted online on Friday reads: "We regret to advise that Arctic Monkeys must postpone their show at Sheffield Arena on Saturday 2nd November 2013. "The show at Sheffield Arena will now take place on Monday 18th November 2013. We wish to apologise to all ticket holders for any inconvenience this has caused." The two other cancelled shows have been rescheduled for 20 and 21 November (13).
