Band recover from illness to play tonight (Feb 20) in Cardiff

The Ting Tings are set to return to the Shockwaves NME Awards Tour tonight (February 20) in Cardiff, after illness forced the band to pull out of last night’s (February 19) gig in Bristol.

As previously reported on NME.COM, The Ting Tings’ frontwoman Katie White came down with the flu, forcing Jules De Martino, the other half of the band, to replace the band’s live set with a DJ slot.

However, White has now recovered and is set to perform with De Martino at the Cardiff University venue tonight.

The Ting Tings will be the first band on stage, and will be followed by Does It Offend You, Yeah?, Joe Lean and the Jing Jang Jong and The Cribs.
