Tom Rowlands is still recovering from coronavirus, meaning the duo's Arcadia set tonight has been cancelled.
The Chemical Brothers have been forced to pull out of their Glastonbury appearance tonight (Friday 24th June) due to Tom Rowlands having a bout of COVID.
The duo were due to play the festival's Arcadia area at 11pm, but in a message they wrote:

"We were so excited to be back in the fields and to celebrate the return of the festival as were were to be playing Cork on Thursday night. We were hoping that more days rest would allow Tom to recover from COVID, [but] this hasn't so far been the case.

"We share the disappointment and frustration at not being able to do what we do with all of you."
