Lil Wayne has postponed his forthcoming European shows, expected to kick off in Paris on Thursday, due to illness.
The rap star was set to play seven dates in Europe over the next 10 days, including the Roskilde Festival in Denmark and two dates in London.
An official statement said the musician had been forced to cancel the concerts due to "doctor-mandated rest".
"Lil Wayne extends an apology to his fans for the short notice of this postponement," a statement said.
"But [he] looks forward to returning for the performances and visitation with his fans," the statement continued.
Fans have been advised to hold on to their tickets and wait for details of revised dates.
