Arctic Monkeys postpone gigs after Alex Turner diagnosed with laryngitis
The band have postponed two shows in Birmingham and Glasgow
Arctic Monkeys have postponed two shows after lead singer Alex Turner has been diagnosed with laryngitis.
The band postponed their show at Birmingham’s LG Arena last night, and have now said they will also postpone their gig at the Glasgow Hydro tonight.
The show at the LG Arena in Birmingham will now take place on 20 November, and the Glasgow Hydro gig will take place on 21 November.
In a statement on their website, the band said tickets will remain valid for these shows.
The statement reads: “We wish to apologise to all ticket holders for any inconvenience this caused. Please contact the customer services at the box office you purchased your tickets for any further assistance.”
The Sheffield band performed as nominees at the Mercury Prize on Wednesday night, but missed out to James Blake who took home the award.
Blake's album Overgrown beat Arctic Monkey’s AM and David Bowie’s The Next Day to win the prize.
Artic Monkeys made chart history earlier this year when AM reached number one in the albums chart, becoming the only band on an independent label to have achieved five consecutive number one albums in the UK.
