Erasure's remaining sold-out gigs at Dublin's Olympia Theatre on Tuesday and Wednesday night have been postponed until March due to illness. The news follows the postponement of the duo's gig at the same venue on Monday night.

A statement from promotors MCD says: "Unfortunately, due to illness and on Doctor’s advice, tonight (Tuesday, 30th January) and tomorrow night (Wednesday 31st January) sold out concerts at Dublin’s Olympia Theatre have been postponed.

"This follows the postponement of the bands concert last night. Tickets for all original dates will remain valid for the rescheduled dates which will be confirmed within the next 48hrs.

"Erasure and MCD apologise for the inconvenience caused, thank you for your understanding and patience."

The electro-pop group, made up of former Depeche Mode member Vince Clarke and Andy Bell, left fans disappointed last night after Bell said he was still battling a throat infection.

On Monday night they had assured fans that tonight and Wednesday's gigs were expected to go ahead.
