After postponing three gigs this weekend, including tonight's Brixton Academy gig, Manic Street Preachers have released a statement from acutely laryngitis-struck singer James Dean Bradfield.

"I would like to personally apologise to the fans. Nothing makes us feel worse than having to postpone a show. We were particularly looking forward to playing two nights at Brixton as we have such special memories of previous gigs at this venue. To say we are gutted about this situation is putting it mildly!"

Tickets for the Birmingham O2 Academy gig are valid for the rescheduled show on Tuesday 14 December.

Yesterday's Brixton tickets are valid for Friday 21 January and tonight's tickets are valid for Saturday 22 January.

    I hope Mr. Bradfield recovers very from the laryngitis. It is a downer to see the shows get cancel, my cousin had tickets to be there at Brixton on 29th and I was excited that I would be getting some cool pics from her. But hey at least they have plans for rescheduling after James recovers (I hope it would be soon).
