Cockney musical duo Chas and Dave have pulled out of their gig in Potters Bar this month after pianist Chas announced he has cancer.
The duo, who have been performing together since the 1970s, began a nationwide tour on Friday (February 3) which included a gig at Wyllyotts Theatre on February 17.
However the gig has been postponed after hospital tests revealed Chas has cancer of the oesophagus.
A band spokesman said: "Luckily this has been spotted at an early stage and he’ll be undergoing treatment immediately.
"Chas expects to be back out on the road with Dave again soon, but in the meantime, the Potters Bar, Norwich, and Milton Keynes dates on the 17th, 18th, and 19th of February will need to be rescheduled."
"Apologies to ticket-holders for the inconvenience. The venues themselves will advise regarding re-scheduling/refunds etc."
The current tour is entitled "The Final Farewell Tour" for the duo whose hits include Gertcha, Rabbit and Ain’t No Pleasin You.
