Chuck Berry postpones UK tour
Electric guitar pioneer Chuck Berry has postponed his imminent UK tour, promoters have confirmed.
The rock 'n' roll legend was due to start his tour in Liverpool tonight, but has rescheduled the dates for next year.
Ticketholders have been advised that the original tickets will be valid for the new gigs, which are set to take place in March.
According to promoters, the tour had to be put back because there was not enough lead-in time to prepare the marketing and advertising.
However, they insisted that it looks set to be a "great rock 'n' roll tour".
Chuck Berry is widely regarded as one of the most influential electric guitar players in history, inspiring a succession of legendary acts such as The Beatles and The Rolling Stones.
The Fab Four covered Rock and Roll Music on their Beatles for Sale album in 1964, while the Stones recorded versions of many Berry classics including Come On and Carol.Posted on 21 Nov 2009 08:00 to category : Band / Celebrity News
