We were all meant to be off to see @officialsteps tonight at @motorpointarenacardiff Cardiff but sadly due to Covid cases they've had to cancel.

"I know @ianhwatkins is absolutely gutted as it was his home town show. Hopefully you'll be back soon and we can all get our sequins @owainwynevans and latex @natsus1 out for another time. It's a TRAGEDY… See what I did there! Groan…."

"For the safety of everyone involved in the show we have decided to reschedule tonight's Cardiff show and Wednesday's Bournemouth show to Summer 2022 (dates to be announced soon).
