Happy Mondays man suffers from thyroid condition

Shaun Ryder postpones UK tour after falling ill
Shaun Ryder has been forced to postpone the rest of his UK tour after falling ill.

The Happy Mondays frontman suffers from a problem with his thyroid, a gland in the back of the throat. He has fallen ill after being prescribed the incorrect medication for his condition.

SJM Concerts, the tour’s promoters, issued a statement about the cancellation.

It reads: “Due to unforeseen circumstances, we regrettably have to postpone the Shaun Ryder tour. Shaun has suffered with his thyroid condition for a while now, and unfortunately he has been prescribed the incorrect medication which has left unable to continue. We will be rearranging dates when Shaun is back to full health again.”

Tickets will remain valid for the rearranged dates, though there is no confirmation of when those will be.

The affected dates are:

Manchester Academy (February 19)
Newcastle O2 Academy (21)
Leeds O2 Academy (22)
Glasgow O2 ABC (23)
London O2 Shepherds Bush Empire (25)
Cardiff Millennium Music Hall (26)
Cambridge Junction (27)
