Erasure cancels shows due to illness Andy Bell

Interview - Erasure still believe in love - Andy and Vince talk about their new album'World Be Gone'

After having to cancel their concert at The Olympia in Dublin 2 days ago, Erasure have also canceled their show last night and tonight at the same venue.

In a statement the band says that Andy Bell has been fighting an infection and was advised by a throat-specialist to postpone their first Dublin show, the first of three successive sold-out nights the band were due to play at the venue this week. Having returned to the same specialist yesterday Bell has been advised to rest his voice for a little longer and as a result the band’s other 2 scheduled shows have also been postponed.

Tickets for all original dates will remain valid for the rescheduled dates which will be confirmed within the next 24 hours.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 2 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
