The band Chas and Dave has postponed a Norwich gig after singer Chas Hodges was diagnosed with cancer.

The duo had been due to perform at The Waterfront on Saturday, February 18, but this show has now been rescheduled for Saturday, September 9.

A statement on Chas and Dave's Facebook page said: 'Chas recently underwent hospital tests which revealed cancer of the oesophagus. 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 17, 18, and 19 of February will need to be rescheduled. Apologies to ticket-holders for the inconvenience. The venues themselves will advise regarding re-scheduling/refunds etc.'

Tickets for the original February 18 gig at The Waterfront will be valid for the September 9 gig.
