TONIGHT’S UB40 concert has been postponed after the lead singer lost his voice.

A Southend Theatres spokesman said the organisation was trying to contact everyone who purchased tickets for the Cliffs gig after Duncan Campbell, who joined the reggae group in 2008, fell ill.

Tickets will remain valid for the new date of Monday, May 19, and anyone unable to attend the new date is asked to contact the Cliffs box office by April 30 to return their ticket for a full refund on 01702 351135.
