The funkster will play his Hot Hot Heat support in a wheelchair as he recovers from shingles...

HAR MAR SUPERSTAR will leap from his sickbed to perform in LONDON this Friday (May 2).

The US funkster had to cancel his eight-date UK tour, which was due to start in Manchester this evening (April 30), after contracting shingles.

But he today revealed he will support Hot Hot Heat at ULU singing from a wheelchair.

In typical Har Mar fashion he will be accompanied by nurses who will usher him to the London Barfly after the gig, where he is playing a DJ set.

Har Mar, otherwise known as Sean Tillman, has said he will be back playing the UK festival circuit during the summer.
