A touring tribute show to the music of Michael Jackson scheduled to rock up at Stevenage’s Gordon Craig Theatre next month has been delayed until the summer.

Star of the show Ben Bowman was taken ill on stage during the opening performance of the 2015 tour and needed surgery to return him to health.

That means that unlucky punters who were planning to catch the show on Friday, March 13, will now have to wait until Sunday, June 21.

Organisers said: “Ben and the team are very sorry for any inconvenience caused and are looking forward to seeing everyone later in the year.”
