Nine Inch nails were forced to cancel their show tonight (Mar 5) in Birmingham.

A post from Trent Reznor's blog today reads:

"I apologize for postponing the show tonight in Birmingham - I simply have to not sing for a couple of days. Please know I do not make this decision lightly and I am sorry for the inconvenience. See you again soon, Trent."

The date at Birmingham Academy has been rescheduled for Tuesday August 28, with tonight's tickets valid for the new date.

It is unclear whether the rest of the tour, including four night at Brixton Academy in London, are off, however it would seem unlikely gigs this week will go ahead.

We'll bring you official confirmation when we get it.
