John Illsley said: “It is with much regret that the remaining shows on this tour have had to be cancelled. The shows we had done already were great but, obviously, it would be irresponsible, and impossible, to continue in the light of the government’s recent announcement. The most important thing is that people remain safe and if cutting back on social gatherings helps then so be it. We shall be looking at rescheduling the dates as soon as it is safe and possible to do so.”
