Oasis was forced to cancel its appearance at the second leg of the U.K. V Festival, held in Chelmsford, England on Sunday night (Aug. 23), after lead singer Liam Gallagher was diagnosed with viral laryngitis; Snow Patrol took over the vacated headline slot.

An Oasis spokesperson said in a statement: "After a year of being on the road this is the first performance to be lost to a band member's illness, so naturally we are all completely gutted. Liam is resting and should be fine to resume the tour next Friday in Paris."

The band had headlined the Staffordshire, England leg of the dual site V Festival the previous night.

Snow Patrol performed cover versions of Oasis' hits "Wonderwall" and "Champagne Supernova" during its set in tribute to the absent band.

Oasis' world tour is set to continue with a headline set at Rock en Seine, Paris, Aug. 28 before wrapping at the I-Day Milano Urban Festival, Italy, Aug. 30.
