Mary Black forced to cancel a string of concerts due to illness

Mary Black has been forced to cancel a string of concerts due to illness.

The singer was supposed to perform this Friday, April 13 in Killarney’s INEC and Saturday, April 14 in the Woodlands Hotel in Waterford, both of which have now been postponed.

A statement on Black’s website reads:

"I am so sorry to have to postpone two gigs this weekend. I was sick last weekend but I managed to get through two concerts on Friday and Saturday night. However, my health has gotten progressively worse and this week the doctor told me I have shingles as well as a throat and ear infection!

She continued to say that she’s been confined to bed for “the next while”.

Thankfully for fans, the 62-year-old has rescheduled the gigs for July 20 and 21.
