Veteran artist Joe Brown has been forced to cancel his planned 60th anniversary tour. 

Initially postponed due to Covid, the tour has now been cancelled following medical advice. 

“I had been looking forward to this tour for a long time,” said the 80-year-old, “and I am only sorry I am unable to do it – I think it would have been my farewell tour in any event. All good things come to an end sometime although I would still like the chance for that last hurrah with all my loyal fans, both old and new who have been on this strange old musical ride with me so I don’t think this will be the end.

“When The Beatles supported me in 1962 I never thought for one moment I’d still have been performing almost 60 years later so anything is possible.”

Vintage Rock understands that ticket holders will be contacted to arrange refunds.
