UB40 have been forced to cancel their forthcoming UK tour dates due to their drummer, Jimmy Brown, suffering from repetitive strain injury in his wrists.

The dates affected are the Sky Dome Arena, Coventry (13th September), and the Planet Ice Arenas in Peterborough (16th September), Ryde (18th September) and Cardiff (20th September).

A statement has been released from the band’s management: “UB40 are deeply sorry for the inconvenience this will cause their fans. The band had been looking forward to these shows all summer but, as his treatment continues, Jimmy has been advised not to play for the foreseeable future.”

UB40’s new album, Getting Over The Storm was released September 2nd and received rave reviews and ‘Album of the Week’ on BBC Radio 2.

Ticket holders can obtain a full refund from www.seetickets.com or from the venue’s box office.
