Anyone booked up for the Autumn run of forum favourites King King dates will surely have seen the news that the majority of this months gigs have been cancelled due to Alan suffering throat problems.

From the man himself:-
From Facebook for those who don’t
Ok friends, we promised you an update on my progress.
Here it is…..
I have seen my ENT specialist and he had the camera down my throat to take a look at what condition my vocal cords were in. Unfortunately there was still a good bit of inflammation and redness. I’ve also been working with a vocal coach to build strength and stamina to aid with my recovery. Unfortunately both vocal coach and doctor felt the same, that I should avoid singing for at least another 4 weeks.
So, here’s what we’re going to do!
We will be re-scheduling most of the dates on the UK tour in to January, February and March, however, there is some good news We will be committing to the remaining 4 shows of the UK tour, beginning with Edinburgh on the 25th November, continuing through Chester, Clitheroe and wrapping up with a show in London. (All rescheduled shows are now announced on our website and included on the flyer with this post)
So if you have a ticket for any of the November shows that are due to be rescheduled then your ticket will still be valid for the Jan/Feb/ March dates.
I can only apologise to you once again for this but as over 1000 of you have already pointed out in your wonderfully kind messages previously… my health and future prospects must come first. I really hope you understand and aren’t too disappointed. I can honestly say that you guys have been so great through all of this and no band could ask for better fans.
Anyone of you that know me personally knows that this comes from my heart and I thank you for your patience and friendship.
I’ve been extremely lucky to have the support from my King King boys and we all hope that you’ll be waiting for us when we return! We’ll keep you up to date with what’s going on in the meantime in the studio and we may even post up some rehearsals and various things like that to keep you in the loop!
So, thanks again, and for those who have their tickets for this years shows .. we’ll see you in Edinburgh on the 25th, Chester on the 26th, Clitheroe on 27th and London on the 29th. These will be the last U.K. dates of 2016 so let’s sell them out and make them 4 nights to remember!
All the best,
Alan Nimmo

Word on Alan is that he’s made an almost full recovery and is ready to give it large on the four dates remaining for 2017.

All the other dates have been rescheduled and stand as posted above.
