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.
