Chas & Dave have had to postpone a forthcoming concert in Hertfordshire as Benington-based Chas Hodges has been diagnosed with cancer.
The rockney duo – famed for hits including Gertcha, Sideboard Song, Rabbit, Ain’t No Pleasing You and Margate – were due to appear at the Wyllyotts Theatre in Potters Baron Friday, February 17.
However, the musical pair’s new Chas & Dave: The Fully Story Live show in Potters Bar, along with tour dates in Norwich and Milton Keynes, has now been called off following the cancer scare for Chas – who lives in the village of Benington to the east of Stevenage.
A statement on Chas & Dave’s website said: “Chas recently underwent hospital tests which have revealed cancer of the oesophagus.
“Luckily this has been spotted at an early stage and he’ll be undergoing treatment immediately.
