Shaun Ryder Sick, Postpones Tour
Singer left ill after medicine mix-up…
Happy Mondayssinger was midway through a series of concerts to promote his greatest hits album, XXX: 30 Years Of Bellyaching, and was due to perform in Manchester on 19 February. But the decision was made to suspend the tour just hours before he was due to take to the stage.
Gig promoters SJM Concerts blamed the cancellation on the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! contestant being prescribed the wrong medicine for a thyroid condition. They said in a statement: "Due to unforeseen circumstances, we regrettably have to postpone the Shaun Ryder tour.
“Shaun has suffered with his thyroid condition for a while now, and unfortunately he has been prescribed the incorrect medication which has left him unable to continue,” the statement said. “Shaun is really disappointed and upset for his fans that he cannot continue with the rest of the tour. We will be rearranging dates when Shaun is back to full health again.”
Gigs in Manchester, Newcastle, Leeds, Glasgow, London, Cardiff and Cambridge will be rescheduled.
