Erasure's sold-out gig at Dublin's Olympia Theatre tonight has been postponed until March due to illness.

Fans of  the 80s electro-pop group, made up of Vince Clarke and Andy Bell, have been left disappointed after it was announced that the concert would not be going ahead.

The A little Respect duo were forced to cancel as Bell is battling a throat infection, but they assured fans that tomorrow and Wednesday's gigs are expected to go ahead.

A press release from MCD, read:  "Unfortunately, due to illness tonight’s sold out Erasure concert at Dublin’s Olympia Theatre has been postponed until 13th March 2018
