LONDON (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Shaun Ryder has postponed the rest of his UK tour due to a "drug problem", but not in the way one might assume.
The British artist, reality TV star, and Happy Mondays frontman suffers from a problem with his thyroid and has fallen ill after being prescribed the incorrect medication for his condition.
SJM Concerts, the tour’s promoters, issued a statement about the cancellation.
“Due to unforeseen circumstances, we regrettably have to postpone the Shaun Ryder tour. Shaun has suffered with his thyroid condition for a while now, and unfortunately he has been prescribed the incorrect medication which has left unable to continue. We will be rearranging dates when Shaun is back to full health again.”
Tickets will remain valid for the rearranged dates, though there is no confirmation of when those will be.
