Paul Heaton is no longer coming to Australia.
A statement from Heaton’s peeps says, “Paul Heaton’s mangement SJM have informed us that Paul and his band are unable to fulfil their Australian tour commitments due to personal circumstances. This has come as a huge shock to us. At this stage we’re unsure when a tour with Paul will happen in the future but both parties would like to make up for this cancellation. Again our sincere apologies.”
Heaton was an original member of The Housemartins (with Norman Cook / Fatboy Slim) and followed that up as a member of The Beautiful South.

Cancelled dates are:
October 17, Adelaide, Jive Bar
October 18, Melbourne, Corner Hotel
