Bad news if you were planning to go along to any of the Peter Hook & The Light gigs scheduled this week.

Unfortunately, the former Joy Division/New Order bassist's newest endeavour has postponed the gigs due to 'band illness'.

The gigs affected are Dolan's, Limerick (Thursday), The Academy, Dublin (Friday) and Mandela Hall, Belfast (Saturday.)

The full statement from the band read:

“It is with great regret that we are forced to postpone this week's Ireland dates for Peter Hook & The Light in Ireland due to band illness. We apologise for any inconvenience or disappointment caused but the situation is unavoidable.

We will be looking to reschedule the shows for 2016 quickly and announcements will be made on our channels”.

The promoter adds: "Current tickets will be valid for the rescheduled shows but ticket holders can apply if necessary for refunds from the ticket agents. Please contact Ticketmaster Customer care for further information on refunds."
