RAZORLIGHT have now rescheduled their UK tour, after having to
postpone the band's February dates when singer, Johnny Borrell
fell ill on the American tour.
As previously reported, Borrell, developed serious problems with
his voice while in the US and the band were forced to cut short
their North American dates, canceling the final sold-out show
at Los Angeles's El Rey Theatre.
Borrell was diagnosed as suffering from a laryngitis type infection,
administered anti-inflammatories and banned from singing for at
least two weeks.
However, just days after the postponement
notices were issued, the band has announced a new set of dates
in March (with original tickets still valid).
The new dates are:
March 13 & 14 - Manchester Apollo (replacing Feb 4 &
March 16 & 17 - Glasgow Academy (replacing Feb 6 & 7)
March 23 & 24 - Alexandra Palace (replacing Feb 11
A statement issued on behalf of the band said: "Tickets
already issued remain valid for the corresponding new dates.
"The bookers politely request that anyone already in possession
of a ticket, who is unable to attend on the rescheduled date,
should seek a refund from the point of sale before March 1."
Johnny, Björn, Carl, and Andy apologise for the inconvenience
caused to all those coming to the shows and are keen to reschedule
the sold-out six night run at Manchester Apollo, Glasgow Academy,
and London's Alexandra Palace with as little delay as possible.
