The final date of Radiohead's Australian tour has been cancelled after frontman Thom Yorke suffered voice problems.

Local promoter Michael Chugg and Radiohead manager Bryce Edge this morning issued a joint statement to confirm the decision to pull Tuesday night's concert at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne.

Yorke apparently first suffered problems with his throat during a performance the previous night in the Victorian capital Melbourne. Having struggled to complete the concert, Yorke is said to have consulted a specialist who warned of "irreparable" damage.

"This morning he was attended by a Melbourne ear nose and throat specialist who diagnosed Thom with marked hoarseness of voice, a significant upper airway infection and associated heavy inflammation of his vocal chords," says the statement.

"It was advised that if Thom was to sing in the next few days it could cause irreparable damage to his voice."

The band had already completed two dates at the Sydney Entertainment Center from April 23-24, following a string of performances in Tokyo.

It is unclear how Yorke's ailment will affect the band as it prepares for an appearance this weekend at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival in Indio, Calif. The band's Website indicates that the Coachella date will go ahead.
