Roxymphony Tour Cancelled

16 August 2019


We are sorry to announce that Roxymphony featuring Andy Mackay and Phil Manzanera has been CANCELLED.

Statement from Andy:

“For some years I have suffered from Dupuytrens Contracture. For those who don’t know, this is a progressive disease of the hands where the tendons of the fingers thicken and are pulled out of shape. It has no known cure, is partly hereditary and is generally found in people of Viking or Northern European descent and was first described - by a doctor Dupuytren I presume, in Normandy. I have had four operations over the past decade which have been pretty successful in freeing up my fingers and I have been able to continue playing. However, my consultant has told me that the little finger of my left hand, which is quite badly affected, cannot be operated on again at this time. For those who are not woodwind players, the little fingers of both hands do rather a lot of work playing all the lowest notes on the instrument - low B flat, B, C and E flat, as well as the little finger of the left hand playing G sharp. Although most of the notes are still available, I don’t feel I can perform properly with this condition and reluctantly am withdrawing from all performance for the foreseeable future”

We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused. Refunds will be issued automatically back to the account you used when making the purchase within 10 working days.
