“I thought I was going mad when I heard the news, what with trying to get the LP out and everything else, trying to celebrate my 39th birthday, it’s enough to drive you insane. Mark E. Smith III Reign that is!”
Unfortunately, due to Mark’s ongoing flu and chest infection, the scheduled concert at Leeds Belgrave Music Hall tomorrow (Friday 24th February) has been postponed.
The Fall apologise to fans planning on attending the Newcastle or Leeds gigs. They will be rescheduled as soon as Mark is well enough.
Update: Bristol (31st March) has also been postponed.
The Fall regrets to cancel the show in Newcastle on Thursday 23rd February at Boiler Shop, this is due to lead singer Mark E. Smith contracting a serious case of influenza flu coupled with a chest infection of which both are highly contagious. The Fall promise to fulfil this engagement just as soon as Mark E. Smith is well enough too, between 4/5 weeks. The Fall wish to apologise to all our devout Newcastle and Gateshead followers.
