Uh-oh! It looks like a flu bug is floating around as both D’Angelo and Azealia Banks canceled shows due to illness. The R&B singer canceled his Aug. 1 show in New York, while the rapper axed two festival dates.

D canceled his show in Brooklyn at the eleventh hour much to the chagrin of his fans. However, the venue is offering refunds to disappointed ticket holders.

There’s no word if D’Angelo’s other shows will be postponed as well. According to Ticketmaster, the ‘How Does It Feel’ crooner has concerts in Detroit (Aug. 4), Chicago (Aug. 7) and in San Francisco, Calif. (Aug. 9) next week.

Meanwhile, Azealia Banks axed her festival shows at Montreal’s Osheaga festival (Aug. 2) and Chicago’s Lollapalooza (Aug. 3) due to a throat infection.

According to Billboard, this is the second successive year the ‘212’ rapper has pulled out of festivals at the last minute. Last year, Banks canceled a handful of U.K. and European summer dates because, according to her, they were booked by her old management without her consideration.

Banks’ next performance will be at the HARD Summer Festival in Los Angeles this Sunday (Aug. 4).
