Yard Act have been forced to cancel tonight’s Newcastle show.

Writing on Twitter, frontman James Smith explains: “I’m gutted to say we have to cancel tonight. I’ve been battling a sickness bug since Sunday. Was hunkered down in the hopes I would’ve shaken it by now, but I still can’t move an inch without running to the toilet. I’m gutted.”

“I hate cancelling shows, I’m so sorry. We are working on a reschedule if you hold tight or you can get a refund from point of purchase too. Hoping we will be able to be back on the road for Edinburgh tomorrow but right now I need to stay in bed shaking and depressed.”

Yard Act’s tour dates are currently set to pick back up in Edinburgh tomorrow, 2nd March.

Yard Act dropped their debut album ‘The Overload’ earlier this year, hitting Number 2 in the UK albums chart.

At the weekend, they played a homecoming show at Leeds’ Brudenell Social Club, where they teamed up with support act Baba Ali to perform a cover of LCD Soundsystem’s ‘Daft Punk Is Playing At My House’. You can check that out here.
