Azealia Banks Cancels Lollapalooza & Osheaga Performances Due To Throat Infection

First it was Frank Ocean. Then it was D’Angelo. And now, we can add Azealia Banks to the list of high-profile artists who have canceled shows this past week because of an illness.

The Harlem upstart was set to perform at the Lollapalooza and Osheaga festivals in Chicago and Quebec, respectively. But the NME has learned that she was forced to bail on the shows because she is reportedly suffering from a “severe throat infection.”

According to Banks’ website, she has three more performances lined up through Aug. 5, though it’s unclear if she’ll have to back out on those, too. Surprisingly, she hasn’t taken to her usually colorful Twitter account, which at the moment is filled with Instagram photos from her recent gigs.

A replacement is yet to be named for Banks’ Osheaga slot, but Wisconsin-hailing group Phox will take her spot at Lollapalooza.

We recommend some tea and honey for Ms. Banks.
