[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Duran Duran[/lastfm] has called off its summer tour because frontman Simon Le Bon is recovering from voice problems. The European tour had been due to start in Dublin next week and continue through mid-September.

Le Bon said Tuesday he had damaged muscles controlling his vocal cords, leaving him unable to hit top notes, and had been advised to undergo physical therapy.

He said it was unclear how long he would take to recover. But he added: “I am doing everything I can to work through this and get back on track as soon as possible.
