Chakademus and Pliers's European tour -- dubbed One Night Stand, off the name of their latest single -- has been postponed.

Booking agent and producer Cabel Stephenson, says Chakademus is just not well enough to perform on the 13-gig tour, which was slated to have kicked off on July 22 in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, and end on August 7 in the UK.

According to the booking agent, hey went to a show in Martinique last week and came through Santo Domingo, and when Chaka returned to Jamaica, he started to have headaches and a high fever. He didn't want to take any chances, so he went to the doctor who treated him and he was placed on observational rest.

Both Chaka and Pliers were reportedly looking forward to this tour as it included a major festival in Holland, and it would have given them the opportunity to promote their latest single, One Night Stand in the UK market. They had interviews lined up for BBC Radio One, Capital Radio, BBC 1xTRA, the Mirror newspaper, and several magazines.

Stephenson, added: "They just want to apologise to their fans and they are grateful for their understanding, but this was unavoidable."

One Night Stand, was released on the Free People Entertainment label on July 13 via iTunes and is being distributed via VPAL.

Chaka Demus and Pliers (Everton Bonner) enjoyed relatively successful solo careers before collaborating in the early 1990s. The duo's hits include Tease Me, She Don't Let Nobody and Murder She Wrote.
