GREAT SCOTT!

"Unforeseen obligations" and "conflicting band member schedules" are to blame...

JILL SCOTT has been forced to cancel part of her forthcoming UK tour due to “unforeseen obligations” and “conflicting band member schedules”.

Scott had previously announced details of a UK tour, which called at the Edinburgh Liquid Rooms last night (November 12).

However, in a statement released today (November 13) by her record label Epic, it is revealed that a number of her regional dates will now be cancelled, allowing Scott to return to the US.

The cancelled dates are at:

Bristol New Trinity Hall (November 17)

Brighton Corn Exchange (18)

Manchester University (20)

Two shows at the London Shepherd’s Bush Empire on November 15-16 will go ahead as planned, but these will be the final dates on her tour.

Details on how fans can receive refunds will be announced shortly.
