Randy Newman has had to postpone his forthcoming European tour, including his first UK show in five years, due to ill health.
The veteran singer, who was awarded an Oscar for Best Song in 2001, was due to perform at the South Bank’s Royal Festival Hall on November 19.
The press statement reads: “It is with great regret that Grammy and Academy Award-winner Randy Newman has had to postpone his forthcoming European tour on doctor’s orders because of physical limitations and severe pain caused by stenosis in the lower back and neck.”
The tour was due to start in Berlin on Saturday (November 1) and Newman was to debut songs from his latest album Harps And Angels live.
Randy Newman apologises to fans saying: “I deeply regret not being able to come. I like it so much in Europe and I’ve always been treated so well. I’ll get there as soon as I can.”
Ticket holders are advised to contact venues for refund information.
Rescheduled dates will be announced shortly.
