A spokesman for Shaggy said “recent events” were to blame for the delayed dates.

Meanwhile, Shaggy, who’s currently at Number Ten in the UK singles charts with ‘Luv Me, Luv Me’, releases a fourth single from his Number One album, ‘Hot Shot’, on November 19.

The single will be a double A-side of ‘Dance And Shout’ and ‘Hope’.
