Shoreham (3rd Nov) and Fareham (4th Nov) Cancelled
« on: Thursday, November 3 2011 11:40AM GMT-1 »
Hi there,

We're really sorry to have to cancel (hopefully reschedule ASAP) these gigs at such short notice.  Jon has been struggling along with quite a serious throat infection on this tour and it's got to the point where he can still sing the notes fine, but can't actually pronounce any words without serious pain.  Despite our jokes about not needing consonants to sing - it turns out that you actually do!

As I say - we will try and get these gigs rescheduled soon if that is at all possible with our own diaries and those of the venues.  The venues have been contacted and will be in touch with ticket holders as soon as they can.

This is only the third time in 10 and a bit years that we've ever cancelled a gig and the first ones due to illness (the other two were aeroplane related)

Once again - massive apologies to anyone who was planning on coming.

J&J

Shame you've had to cancel, but a wise move.  Hope the throat is better soon Jon x

I'm impressed that this is the first time 10 years! Must be nasty - look after it, and get well soon Jon (and steer clear, Squeezy!).

Get well soon Jon!  It's a horrid bug - nearly two weeks and I'm just starting to get better!  Get antibiotics quickly - I struggled for a week and it got worse and worse until it went from throat to chest and that has been really miserable!  Very best for getting well soon
