MADNESS' Carlisle summer gig will not go ahead as originally planned.

It was due to take place on June 9 but concertgoers have been told the date has been pushed back to Sunday July 21.

An email was sent out by Ticketline to those who had purchased tickets.

It said: "Due to circumstances beyond the control of the artist and promoter, Madness live from Bitts Park will now take place on Sunday July 21, 2019.

"We apologise for any inconvenience and if anyone cannot make the rescheduled date, tickets can be refunded from point of purchase. All other tickets remain valid.

"The event is now open to all ages and we are looking forward to the show.”

The email added that those with tickets who have any queries should contact the customer service team.
