THEY were forced to cancel a show in Lewis in December, and it’s going to be disappointment for island music-fans once more as The Vaccines have had to pull out of the rescheduled December gig due to take place on April 1.

A statement released by the band expands: “Regretfully the Vaccines must cancel their tour of the Highlands next week.

“Unfortunately, Justin has to have a further routine operation on his throat. This is scheduled for April 11 and as a preventative measure, his doctors have advised the band to cancel the smaller roomed shows on the tour as these are the ones which prove most demanding on his voice and can cause permanent damage.” They add: “The Vaccines sincerely apologies for any inconvenience and we are trying to reschedule the dates for September. We will advise asap when we have the new dates scheduled.”

Tickets for the sold-out show that was due to take place at the Woodlands Centre on Friday, April 1, will be refunded at the point of purchase.
