Arctic Monkeys have rescheduled an appearance at Birmingham’s LG Arena after leaving thousands of fans disappointed when they cancelled hours before a gig.
Lead singer Alex Turner has been diagnosed with laryngitis and was unable to perform in Birmingham last night.
The band has now also postponed a gig at the Glasgow Hydro which was due to take place tonight, after seeking medical advice.
Managers of the band however today revealed the band would return to the Birmingham LG Arena on November 20, and the show at the Glasgow Hydro will now take place on November 21.
All tickets will remain valid for these shows.
A statement said: “We wish to apologise to all ticket holders for any inconvenience this has caused. Please contact the customer services at the box office you purchased your tickets for any further assistance.”
Last night’s cancellation came just hours after Turner had been pictured partying after missing out on the Mercury Music prize to James Blake on Wednesday night.
After the awards ceremony, he and his band mates reportedly partied at the exclusive Groucho Club in Soho until 3am.
Fans took to Twitter last night to express their disappointment.
Being told that Arctic Monkeys was cancelled was the scariest thing that has ever happened to me, HAPPY HALLOWEEN— charles. (@raise__it__up) October 31, 2013
The band scored their fifth consecutive number one album with AM this year. They became the first act on an independent record label to see five albums debut at number one.
The album, released by Domino Records, went straight to the top of the charts in September, in the week it was revealed to be in the running for this year’s Barclaycard Mercury Prize.
It was the third nomination for the Sheffield band, who took the prize in 2006.
