[b]Manic Street Preachers[/b] have postponed their gigs tonight and tomorrow (October 28/29) at [b]London[/b]’s [b]O2 Academy Brixton[/b].

The band cannot play because frontman [b]James Dean Bradfield[/b] is unwell with laryngitis and has been told by doctors to rest his voice.

“I would like to personally apologise to the fans,” the singer said in a statement. “Nothing makes us feel worse than having to postpone a show. We were particularly looking forward to playing two nights at [b]Brixton[/b] as we have such special memories of previous gigs at this venue. To say we are gutted about this situation is putting it mildly.”

Tonight’s show has been rescheduled for January 21, while tomorrows will take place on January 22. Tickets remain valid and refunds are available from point of purchases if necessary.
