Lemon Jelly

have cancelled their JELLYLAB tour due to “complex and varied” reasons and “basic cock-ups”, but are organising “jelly related” compensation for all disappointed ticket-holders.

The Mercury Music Prize-nominated dance outfit were due to embark on their biggest ever UK tour throughout October. As well as the main attraction, seven-piece drum & bass act London Elektricity and DJ Tom Middleton were due to appear and fans were also promised ‘spectacular visuals’ and ‘mystery giveaways’.


In a statement issued by the duo, they said: “It’s with great regret that we announce that we have been forced to pull the plug on our forthcoming tour. The reasons are complex and varied and finally came down to some basic cock-ups at our end combined with circumstances beyond our control.”

They added: ” WE ARE GUTTED and wish to send our deepest apologies out to all those who forked out their hard earned readies for the opportunity to come and see us. We will do our very best to make it up to you, both in the future and also in the here and now; specifically we are organising an exclusive Jelly-related item to be offered to all ticket holders as well as their refund.”

Further details of what the duo are planning are being currently being finalised and will be released over the next few days. The details will be released through the band’s official website.
