Singer Joe Elliott battled bad throat on stage

Los Angeles: Singer Joe Elliott apologised to his fans for cutting short his Ney York concert as he was battling bad throat.

The Deff Leapord singer was not feeling good on his US tour and had to end the concert after getting a bad cough while on the stage.

"I caught a hacking cough which just ripped the hell out of my voice. Despite all the usual stuff singers do such as lemon tea, steam, etc. It just wasn`t going to heal overnight, but with sufficient rest and plenty of warming up I thought I might manage to do the following show in Saratoga Springs," the 53-year-old wrote on their official website.

"I was tough and I was ploughing through it as best I could, but by the time we got to Photograph, there was barely anything left in the tank and it was starting to hurt, so... I had to make a decision... do the encore and risk doing so much damage that we might have to cancel a bunch of shows, or blow out one song and sort out a doctor to have a look at me, which we did the following morning," he added.
