During the Scottish leg of the tour Phil wasn´t too well, but he carried on until eventually on the day of the Brighton concert, he completely lost his voice because of laryngtis and, to complete the misery, caught flu as well. Doctor´s instructions were for him to rest for several days so the concert in Brighton, Coventry, Leicester, Cardiff and Southampton had to be cancelled.
