Hip-hop pioneer DJ Afrika Bambaataa was scheduled to spin tomorrow night (Jan. 26) at the Mid. Not anymore -- he's canceled due to illness and hopefully will reschedule. Information about refunds is here.

A statement from the club's promoters says: "Afrika Bambaataa has become ill and is unable to make it to Chicago tomorrow, so the event is canceled. Although it isn't serious, he is in the hospital and we should send him our positive energy for a fast recovery. We are working to reschedule this event, but must wait until Afrika recovers
to plan a new date."

Bambaataa's scheduled gig Thursday night in Grand Rapids is not showing canceled yet.
