Francis Rossi Statement:
“We have a duty of care to Francis Rossi's audience, a number of whom fall into the high risk categories identified by the Government. Therefore, we have today been advised that the I Talk Too Much tour should be postponed with immediate effect.
"The shows will be rescheduled with venues to a later date, once the risk of infection has passed. We request that fans retain their tickets, so that they can attend the rescheduled shows, for which dates will soon be announced.
"Francis Rossi continues to look forward to visiting all of the scheduled venues as soon as he is allowed to do so. We apologise for any disruption and inconvenience this causes and reiterate that the decision is based on the need to protect fans from the risk of infection.
"We are acting on the very latest advice of our health and safety advisor. Francis and everyone involved is bitterly disappointed but the advisor's focus is on protecting the health of Francis (being in the 70 plus category), the crew on the tour, staff at venues and especially the fans attending."
