The Enemy speak after cancelling tour

Tom Clarke apologises after illness forces postponement

The Enemy have spoken out over a series of cancelled dates.

The band were forced to cancel a series of European gigs, leaving frontman Tom Clarke to directly apologise to fans via the internet today (January 15).

“Please accept my apologies for having to again cancel the recent shows in Europe. I’ve come down with a bacterial throat infection that’s made it impossible to sing and forced us to come home,” he wrote on his blog. “It’s the last thing we wanted to happen, but under doctors orders I am back home resting.”

The singer added the band hoped to reschedule the cancelled shows, explaning: “We got one blinding show into the tour in Holland, I wake up the following day and can’t sing! We cancelled one show and tried to wait it out but I just got worse.

“I’m gutted about this, we were really up for coming over there giving it 10 and blowing you lot away, especially after having to cancel last time too! Please bear with us, we’re dying to get back out there, but the doc says no. Hopefully I’ll get the all clear soon and back out on the road.”
