Sting, riding on the back of the success of his triumphant comeback with The Police, scheduled to perform at the Manchester MEN Arena this week. However, the throat infection means that he has been forced to cancel a few shows.
A spokesman for the organisers confirmed the news, and said that the band was trying to work out a way to reschedule the concerts.
"Sting is suffering from a throat infection, which has forced the band to postpone concerts," the Daily Express quoted a spokesman, as saying.
"We hope to have a rescheduling announcement shortly."
The reunited group, which also consists of founder members Andy Summers and Stewart Copeland, has already performed in the US and Canada.
