The band has sold more than 70m albums and had chart-topping singles such as Red, Red Wine and I Got You Babe.

The concert was already postponed and in an interview with The Guide, bassist Earl Falconer said: ‘We're chomping at the bit to get going.

‘It's been two years and things kept getting postponed and stuff. Obviously we just hope we can keep going – we've got a lot of work to get through.’
