They've been hit by illness - The band's gig at the Mean Fiddler is on...

PRETTY GIRLS MAKE GRAVES have confirmed they will be well enough to play their LONDON show this evening (December 18).

As previously reported, the band have been forced to cancel a number of UK shows due to illness.

The Seattle outfit had been on tour in the UK when singer Andrea Zollo caught a very bad flu which developed into a chest infection.

Shows at Nottingham Rescue Rooms and Manchester Academy 3 were pulled.

However, a spokesperson for the band has said this evening’s gig at the London Mean Fiddler will go ahead as planned.

The cancelled dates will be rescheduled for February, when the band will be back in the UK to play an NME Awards show with Distillers and Peaches at London Brixton Academy on February 11.
