Idlewild have been forced to cancel their sell-out headlining show in CARDIFF UNIVERSITY tonight (October 24) due to illness, NME.COM can reveal.

Frontman Roddy Woomble has been laid low by a virus he has been battling for the last week.

The line-up for the show, which will be broadcast live on Steve Lamacq's BBC Radio One Evening Session programme as part of the Sound City week of events will now feature Crashland, 100 Reasons with the addition of local heroes Mo-Ho-Bi-Sho-Pi.

A spokesperson for Idlewild told NME.COM that no decision had been taken yet on whether or not the four-piece would perform the final two nights of their tour in Norwich (October 25) and London (26).
