Arctic Monkeys have axed another concert on their European tour as frontman Alex Turner continues to suffer from a throat infection. The Cornerstone hitmakers cancelled three U.K. dates last week (ends03Nov13), including a show in their native Sheffield, England, after Turner was diagnosed with laryngitis. They had hoped to be back on the road in time for their trip to mainland Europe on Monday (04Nov13), but they have now scrapped their planned gig in Offenbach am Main, Germany. A statement on the band's website reads, "We regret to advise that Arctic Monkeys must cancel their show at the Stadthalle Offenbach, Germany on Monday 4th November 2013. Alex Turner is recovering from laryngitis and is not well enough to perform." While the three cancelled British gigs have been rescheduled for later this month (Nov13), it appears fans in the German city will miss out altogether - they have been advised to contact their ticket provider for refunds.
