Manics radio gigs postponed

Tonight's Radio 2 concert featuring the Manic Street Preachers back in their home town has been postponed because of an illness in the band.

The group also had to pull out of a show for Absolute Radio listeners that was due to take place earlier this week in London.

The Radio 2 show this evening was due to be broadcast live but will now be replaced with an archive recording of the band at Glastonbury from 2007.

The intimate gig at the Blackwood Miners Institute was [link=]announced last month[/link] as their first back at the venue where they started their career nearly 25 years ago.

It's thought lead singer James Dean Bradfield has laryngitis. In a statement the Manics said: "As our fans know, we absolutely hate cancelling shows, and we are devastated that we have had to do this – we can only say sorry and hope we can make it up to people when James is well again."

A statement from the BBC said: "Unfortunately due to an illness in the band, the Manic Street Preachers show on Thursday 2 December at Blackwood Miners Institute in Wales is postponed. The show has been rescheduled for 27 January 2011 and the original ticket winners are being offered first refusal on tickets for the new date. We apologise for the inconvenience caused."
