ARCTIC Monkeys have postponed a show at the Glasgow Hydro tonight, after lead singer Alex Turner was diagnosed with laryngitis.
The show has been rescheduled, and will now take place on November 21st.
Last night’s show at Birmingham’s LG Arena was also postponed, and will now take place on November 20th.
The Sheffield rockers are set to perform a homecoming gig at the city’s Motorpoint Arena on Saturday. As of now, that show is expected to go ahead.
A statement on the band’s website said: “Alex Turner has been diagnosed with laryngitis and is regrettably not able to perform. The show at the LG Arena in Birmingham will now take place on November 20 and the show at the Glasgow Hydro will now take place on November 21. All tickets remain valid for these shows.
“We wish to apologise to all ticket holders for any inconvenience this has caused. Please contact the customer services at the box office you purchased your tickets (from) for any further assistance.”
The band were set to be the latest in a string of high profile artists to perform at the Glasgow Hydro, which opened in September with a gig from rock veteran Rod Stewart.
