Reggae royalty, UB40 have been forced to postpone their 2020 tour of Australia to next year.
A combination of COVID-related travel restrictions and the health of lead singer Duncan Campbell, who suffered a stroke last month, forced the decision to push back the dates to April/ May 2021.
"We always look forward to trips down under, but we know it's only a temporary delay, we will be back," the band said in a statement.
"The most important thing is that we all stay safe and we'll see you on the other side of this ordeal."
The tour is part of the band's global 40th anniversary celebrations.
"It was obviously a shock and very worrying when we heard about Duncan having his stroke," band member Robin Campbell says, "but he's having a well deserved rest and continues to recover at home."
The most successful reggae band of all time, UB40 are jukebox kings with their classics 'Red Red Wine' and '(I Can't Help) Falling In Love' cementing their legendary status.
Tickets already purchased will still remain valid for all upcoming shows.
