Hercules and Love Affair have been forced to cancel the remainder of their UK and Ireland tour, including their Paddy's night show at The Button Factory.

In addition to the Dublin date, a total of seven UK dates have been cancelled after one of the band's members was advised not to perform after sustaining an injury. Andy Butler and co., however, did proceed with Friday night's show at London's Village Underground.

The outfit, who were touring in support of second album 'Blue Songs', have said they hope to reschedule all dates as soon as possible. Not much comfort when your Paddy's Day plans are out the window though, eh?
