Tomorrow night’s gig by 1970s pop veterans Showaddywaddy has been postponed as a result of the flight cancellations caused by the ash cloud from Iceland.

The gig had been due to take place at Clickimin Leisure Complex but organiser Shetland Arts said today it was unable to get the band to the isles. The concert will now take place on Saturday 2nd October.

It follows the cancellation of Shetland Country Music Club’s two concerts by Farmer Dan – at the Garrison Theatre tonight and at the Royal British Legion tomorrow night – due to the disruption.

All tickets sold for the original Showaddywaddy concert will valid for the new date. Anyone unable to attend the new date and requiring a refund should present their ticket to the Shetland Box Office at Islesburgh Community Centre from Monday.

“Shetland Arts would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused by these events outwith our control.”
