His management have apologised for any confusion after a 'glitch' on the website listed a performance at Earlham Park in Norwich on May 23.

Young was a guest on BBC programme the One Show last night.

The Leave Right Now singer's management IE Music said there were currently no dates booked for the star.

A spokesman said: 'The date should be removed imminently and my apologies for any confusion.'
