NO NINA IN WOLVES

Singer Nina Persson is ordered to take a break after every three gigs...

THE CARDIGANS have postponed the first date of their UK tour because singer Nina Persson is under doctor’s orders not to sing more than three nights in a row.

The band’s heavy touring schedule has taken its toll on Nina‘s vocal chords, according to a statement from the band’s label Polydor.

The rescheduled gigs are as follows

Glasgow Barrowlands (April 27) Manchester Academy (28) London Kensington Royal Albert Hall (29) Belfast Botanical Gardens (May 2) Dublin Castle (3)

The show at Wolverhampton Civic Hall will now be held on August 25 when The Cardigans return to the UK to play V99 in Stoke and Chelmsford. Tickets are valid for the rescheduled date or refunds can be obtained from point of purchase.
