ACCLAIMED SINGER-SONGWRITER Randy Newman has cancelled his upcoming European tour, which included two Irish dates, due to health reasons.

The 74-year-old was set to perform shows in Dublin’s Vicar Street on 9 and 10 March. These have both been cancelled.

Newman announced today that the tour cancellation is due to a severe knee condition for which he has to undergo surgery.

“I feel terrible about having to cancel these dates,” Newman said in a statement.

“I was looking forward to playing. I apologise for whatever inconvenience I might have caused,” he said.

Tickets for both shows can be refunded from their point of purchase.

Newman released his latest studio album Dark Matter on 27 July 2017.
