Scouting For Girls postpone shows

Band forced out of gigs due to illness

Scouting For Girls postpone shows
Scouting for Girls have been forced to postpone shows on their current UK tour due to illness.

The band are moving their Reading (April 1) and London (April 2-4) shows, but still expect to play Bristol on April 6.

The band have yet to announce new dates, but insist they will reschedule the shows and original tickets will remain valid.

Explaining the postponements, singer Roy Stride wrote: "I woke up today and I still cannot physically speak. My mouth moves but nothing comes out. It is the weirdest scariest feeling in the world, and has never happened to me before. I went to see a proper Harley Street specialist, and I'm now on 18 tablets a day!"

He added on "If there was anything I could have done or taken, I would have done it. We've never cancelled a show ever before in all the time we have been a band, and this would have been our biggest headline show yet. Thanks again for all your support."
