Rock band Royal Blood have pulled out of their planned 3Arena date in Dublin after frontman Mike Kerr tested positive for Covid-19.

The band were due to play the 3Arena on Tuesday, April 5th, but the remainder of their tour has been cancelled after Kerr tested positive for Covid-19 following last night's show at the 02 Arena in London.

Taking to Twitter, the singer said "I'm heartbroken to write this, but despite being fully protected and taking precautions, I have tested positive for Covid following last night's show at the 02 Arena."

"This morning I've waken up to discover I have lost my voice," he said.

"Unfortunately, this isn't something I can "power through", I cannot sing a single note, my voice is gone."

The singer added he was "gutted" as he had been having "the time of our lives" on tour in support of last year's album 'Typhoons'.

He added "your support and passion is not taken for granted for one second" and encouraged fans to hold onto tickets.

The band were set to be supported by fellow Englishmen The Amazons at the Dublin show.

Royal Blood became one of the biggest names in rock music in the 2010's thanks to their 2014 self-titled debut album, which topped the albums charts in Ireland and the UK.

The band have attracted a dedicated fanbase thanks to their bluesy riffs and loud live shows, and last played Ireland in 2017 in support of their #1 album 'How Did We Get So Dark?'
