We know everyone has been working very hard to support the work of the NI Cancer Fund for Children and I understand this decision was taken with extreme reluctance. I would like to thank each and every person who bought a ticket. We would also like to thank everyone who was working behind the scenes to help make this event happen and all media outlets – newspapers, television, radio, online - which helped us promote it.”

Tickets for the Newry event at Pairc Esler, on 1st August are still available from Ticketmaster, Belfast Slipway tickets are transferrable for the Newry event . Tickets for the Belfast concert will be fully refunded through Ticketmaster.
