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.
“Chas expects to be back out on the road with Dave again soon, but in the meantime, the Potters Bar, Norwich, and Milton Keynes dates on the 17th, 18th, and 19th of February will need to be rescheduled.
“Apologies to ticket holders for the inconvenience.”
