Richard Ashcroft was forced to cancel last night’s scheduled show at Birmingham Academy due to throat trouble. The sold out gig has been rescheduled for 12 June and tickets for last night’s show will be valid for the new date.
A statement on the singer’s website reads: “Unfortunately Richard will be unable to perform at his sold out show at Birmingham Academy this evening after taking medical advice on throat and vocal problems. Richard sincerely apologises to all ticket holders.”
Ashcroft is due at Exeter University tonight, before he heads to London for the final three dates of his tour at Brixton Academy on 19, 20 and 21 May.
