Singer cancels cathedral gig

Have your say

SINGER Aled Jones has pulled out of a performance in Sheffield.

The former child star and television presenter was due to perform at Sheffield Cathedral in October as part of his UK Cathedral Tour, but he has been forced to cancel after being named the new male host of ITV morning show Daybreak.

His Sheffield and Manchester dates are the only shows which have not been rescheduled for April and May next year. Refunds are available for ticket holders, who will be contacted once the details of the spring 2013 tour have been finalised.

Aled, who first gained fame for his cover of Walking in the Air, said: “I’m very sorry for the inconvenience this has caused to all those who have already bought tickets and made arrangements to attend the October concerts.

“It is not possible for me to take the time out from Daybreak for this tour so soon after I start.”
