Fans of Status Quo face a five-month wait to see their heroes in Norwich after a late postponement of their gig on Sunday evening.
The enduring rockers were due to play their Aquostic set at the Nick Rayns LCR at the University of East Anglia (UEA).
But the gig was called off after their frontman Francis Rossi was diagnosed with laryngitis after performing at Glastonbury Festival on Friday night.
The gig has been rearranged for 16 November.
A statement said: 'Francis was feeling unwell even before the band played a fantastically well-received headline set on the Acoustic stage at Glastonbury, but after that show it was obvious that there was a problem.

'Medical opinion was duly sought this morning, with the result that tomorrow's show cannot go ahead.'
The band added that postponing a show was 'always a last resort' but said the situation was 'totally outside anyone's control.'
