The Subways cancel more tour dates

Singer Billy Lunn is under doctor’s orders

The Subways have been forced to cancel more tour dates.

Singer Billy Lunn has been ordered by doctors to rest his voice for longer after he was diagnosed with nodules on his vocal chords in April.

The band have now cancelled their upcoming shows throughout June, which are:

Rock Am Park Festival, Germany (June 2-3)

Bournemouth University (10)

Swansea University (16)

Loughborough University (17)

A statement from the band reads: “The band are hugely frustrated by this continued break in touring which has become their whole life over the past four years. Billy is doing everything the doctor has advised and more in an effort to cure his condition as quickly as possible. The have spent much of the time rehearsing new material (without vocals) and recording demos.

“It is expected that Billy will make a full recovery but it is impossible to tell exactly when he will be given the full go ahead to tour again. We will keep everyone informed of his progress as far as possible.”

Lunn has a further appointment in June, after which it is expected another announcement will be made with regards to future touring.
