World-renowned tenor Placido Domingo was due to play Dublin's 3Arena on May 31st, but the performance has now been postponed.

The Spanish opera star will now play the same venue on January 17th, 2016. He celebrates his 75th birthday in January.

No reason for the postponement was given, although Domingo said in a statement ""It is a pity we have to reschedule but sometimes this happens. I hope my friends and fans will forgive me and I can assure you of an even more spectacular show in January".

All original tickets are valid and tickets remain on sale for those who wish to attend the new date.
