Curved Air have cancelled three UK shows as singer Sonja Kristina has rushed to the bedside of her “seriously ill son.”

The band were due to play in Ruislip tonight (Friday), Howden on April 2 and Bolton on April 3, but all three have been pulled. Curved Air say: “Sonja has had to travel to the USA to be with her son who is seriously ill.”
