Arcane Roots have been forced to cancel their shows in London and Wolverhampton which were due to take place later this week.

The UK outfit were scheduled to play the Scala in London tomorrow night (October 5) and the Slade Rooms in Wolverhampton on Friday, but those two shows are off due to an illness affecting the band.

They say in a statement: “Due to serious band illness and unexpected/severe travel issues, we’ve been forced to postpone our London, October 5, and Wolverhampton, October 6, UK tour dates.

“We don’t do this lightly at all and apologise profusely to anyone that has made plans to see us. We want to be 100% sure we can put on a show that you’ll love and that we’ll be proud of.”

The two dates have been rescheduled and will now take place at the Scala, London, on November 2, and at the Slade Rooms, Wolverhampton, on November 8.

Tickets purchased for the original dates will be valid for the November shows.
