Disclosure have postponed tomorrow’s Birmingham O2 Academy show (November 27) until March 4, citing illness as the reason for cancellation.
A statement issued by the band’s press officer reads as follows:
“Unfortunately due to illness; Disclosure have had to postpone their Birmingham O2 Academy show tomorrow (Wednesday 27th November). The show will now take place Tuesday 4th March as part of their next run of UK shows. All original tickets remain valid.”
The announcement comes near the end of an 11-date UK tour which is due to culminate in two sold out dates at London’s Brixton Academy on Thursday (November 28) and Friday (November 29). At this time, these dates are still scheduled to go ahead as planned.
The rescheduled March show is due to be added to a short UK tour, which will see the Mercury Prize-nominated Lawrence brothers headline three huge gigs at Edinburgh Corn Exchange (March 5), Manchester Apollo (6) and London’s Alexandra Palace (8).
Disclosure also recently unveiled a collaboration with Chic frontman Nile Rodgers entitled ‘Together’. The track also features singer Sam Smith, who appeared on Disclosure single ‘Latch’, and songwriter Jimmy Naples. A statement issued from the collaborators at the time of release stated simply: “This is the product of a day in Timber St Studios with Disclosure, Sam Smith, Jimmy Napes and Nile Rodgers. Hope you enjoy!”
