BEN FOLDS FOLDS: Further rock musician illness - don't these people ever wear vests when they go out in the cold? - with the news that Ben Folds is too sick to do anything much than watch Countdown and drink Complan. As a result, this month's tour of the UK has been put back until June 2005. Ben croaks:

"I am very sorry and disappointed to have had to reschedule my UK tour. Rarely in my career have I had to do this. I take missing a show very seriously, but in this case I had no choice, I've got a nice respiratory infection. I'm sorry I'm not there right now and I hope this whole thing doesn't screw up anyone's schedule too badly."

New dates will be thus:

1st London Barbican
2nd Brighton Dome
7th Glasgow Royal Concert Hall
8th Dublin Vicar Street
10th Southampton Guildhall
11th Manchester Lowry
13th Sheffield Octagon
14th Leicester De Montfort Hall
16th Cambridge Corn Exchange
17th Warwick Arts Centre
