Red Hot Chili Peppers have called off their live performance in Glasgow on the morning of the concert due to an unspecified illness.

The band were set to conclude the European leg of their tour at Bellahouston Park on Friday, in support of their 12th studio album ‘Unlimited Love’.

However, a short statement posted on social media said the band “loved Scotland and were deeply disappointed” to postpone the gig.

It added work to reschedule the concert was under way, though no specific date for the new performance was listed.

The nature of the illness was also not disclosed.

The statement read: “Due to illness RHCP will not be able to perform in Glasgow tonight, July 1.

“We are working on ways to reschedule.

“Please hold onto your tickets and wait for an update soon. RHCP love Scotland and are deeply disappointed not to be able to perform the show. Thank you for your understanding.”

The concert would have marked their first performance in the city since 2016.

They previously performed at sell-out shows in Manchester, London and Dublin.
