Tonight's Mandella Hall gig by the Answer has been postponed. Details from CDC below:
**THE ANSWER REGRETFULLY POSTPONES THEIR UK CLUB HEADLINE SHOWS**
Due to ligament / tendon damage to drummer James Heatleys left hand, THE ANSWER regrets to announce the postponement of their imminent UK headline club shows. The affected shows are as follows:
Apr 20th Belfast Mandela Hall
Rescheduled date now confirmed for Belfast
Monday 29th June
(All tickets valid for new date)
THE ABOVE SHOWS WILL BE RESCHEDULED AND ALL TIX WILL BE VALID FOR THE NEW DATES TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON.
Says singer Cormac Neeson, “We are bitterly disappointed to have to postpone our UK headline shows especially for all our fans who have been waiting so patiently for so long. We have left the decision to the absolute last minute in the hope that the medical problem with our drummer James might get better. Unfortunately his hand is swollen and he is in immense pain. He has struggled with pain-killers to get through the recent 30 minute support sets on the AC/DC tour and whilst he can perform a short support set, it is a medical impossibility for him to perform a full one hour and fifteen minute headline set at present.
"We are all very upset that we cannot play our full headline show and we will reschedule the postponed shows as soon as we can. "
From everyone here, the very best to James for a speedy recovery - see you in June!
"Furthermore and as a token of our appreciation to all our disappointed fans we will provide a free and new limited signed tour poster for everyone who has purchased a ticket and this will be distributed at the rescheduled shows.
"Once again we are very sorry at not being able to perform but you know we would never postpone any show unless it was an absolute necessity and in this case we are all hoping that James will make a swift and speedy recovery”
