Gig was due to take place at Islington Assembly Hall on February 6

Kele has been forced to cancel his London gig which was due to be part of the NME Awards Shows 2015 with Austin, Texas.

The series of gigs, which also includes headline dates from Interpol, The Cribs, Peace and Alabama Shakes, take place at various venues around London throughout February.

Kele was due to play Islington Assembly Hall on February 6, but has had to axe the show after falling ill and losing his voice. Refunds will be dealt with at point of purchase. In a statement on Facebook, Kele said: “I am sorry to let you down. I hope to see you soon, thanks as always for your support.”
