Marti Pellow's Pillow Talk due to take place this evening in Bolton has been postponed because of illness.

The Wet Wet Wet singer was due to perform at the Albert Halls as part of a nationwide tour.

But in a statement issued today, by the Albert Halls the show will not take place tonight.

In the statement the venue stated: "Due to a viral illness that has affected four members of the tour party on Marti Pellow's Pellow Talk tour, including Marti, this week's shows will be postponed.

"Members of the touring party have been battling illness for some days and it is no longer possible to continue at present.

"A short pause will ensue, before dates resume. Dates that have been postponed will be rescheduled.

"Marti and the promoter both apologise that it's necessary to put a hold on the tour for now - and look forward to resuming as soon as that's physically possible.

"Please retain your tickets and a new date will be rescheduled as soon as possible. Please monitor for further updates."

The show is billed an 'intimate evening' with a night of stories and songs.
