Slade were due to go on a UK tour in the run-up to Christmas, including a night in Birmingham.

However, the group, which is fronted by founder and guitarist Dave Hill, has put out a message to let fans know the tour would be postponed until December 2021 due to the on-going pandemic.

The message said: “It is with great sadness that we have had to make the decision to postpone their Christmas 2020 tour until 2021.

“When we announced the tour four months ago, there was a positive outlook for Christmas 2020.

“Devastatingly, this is not going to be the case.

“The health and safety of our fans, the band, crew, and venue staff is our upmost priority, so we hope you will understand this decision.

“We look forward to seeing you in 2021, but for now, stay safe, healthy, and look after yourselves and each other.”

The band also said all tickets would be automatically transferred to 2021, but tickets can also be refunded if required at the point of purchase.

It has been a difficult year for Slade, including the acrimonious leaving of original drummer Don Powell in February, who says he was sacked via a 'cold email' from Hill.
