EIGHTIES band Tears for Fears have postponed their spring UK and Ireland tour until 2019.

A statement from the Everybody Wants To Rule The World stars said it was due to ‘unforeseen health concerns and on doctor’s orders.’

The Glasgow show, previously scheduled for May 7, will now take place on February 11 2019.

It will also switch venue from the SEC Armadillo to next door at The SSE Hydro.

Current tickets for the shows across the UK and Ireland will be valid for the new dates, except for the Glasgow and Birmingham gigs due to venue changes.

New tickets will be issued for those shows.

Fans who are unable to make the rescheduled shows can contact the point of purchase for a refund by Sunday 13th May 2018.

A statement from the band said: “Tears for Fears apologise to their fans and are extremely sorry for any inconvenience caused.

“They look forward to working on finishing material for their first new album in fourteen years, with the hope of releasing it this autumn.”

They have also pulled out of the Bath Festival on May 26 and BBC Music’s The Biggest Weekend, both taking place next month.
