The soul legend scraps his scheduled appearance at a tribute event and concert in Chicago, Illinois after falling sick.

Smokey Robinson has pulled out of an appearance at a tribute event and concert in Chicago, Illinois due to illness. The soul legend was due to be honored by both the state of Illinois and the city of Chicago, as well as a local breast cancer charity, at the Smokey Robinson Day celebrations this week.

Robinson was scheduled to attend a reception in his honor in Chicago on Friday, November 19 and play a gig in the city the next day, November 20, but the musician has pulled out of both events after falling sick, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

The newspaper reports organizers hope to reschedule the celebrations.
