The Radiators have regretfully had to postpone their comeback show at the Academy, Dublin, on September 8th. The band, who recently released their acclaimed fourth studio album Sound City Beat, a tribute to the Irish rock scene in the 1960s, had been due to give their first show in over five years.
Their long absence from the live scene is explained by vocalist/guitarist Philip Chevron's prolonged treatment for and recovery from soft-palette cancer. Although given a clean bill of health earlier this year, Phil recently developed unexpected complications in the throat area which, it is believed, may be a consequence of intense exposure to radiotherapy during his treatment. Though no official diagnosis will be made until further tests have taken place, it is thought to be unlikely that the cancer has returned.
The Radiators will reschedule the show as soon as is feasible though for obvious reasons no date has yet been set. Ticketholders for the Academy concert should seek refunds from their original point of sale.
Upcoming concerts by Chevron's other band The Pogues in Cologne, Berlin, Hamburg, Budapest, Paris, Colmar and Somerset are unaffected, though it is considered unlikely that the guitarist will sing in these shows.
The Radiators from Space's Sound City Beat is available from Tower Records, Freebird and other good record shops and online outlets,
