The Chemical Brothers – due to play Castle Howard on Sunday – have cancelled their Glastonbury set tonight because of illness.
But the duo say they still hope to make it to the North Yorkshire stately home.
Their announcement came the day after they cancelled their gig in Cork, Ireland “due to multiple cases of Covid-19 within the band and crew, despite taking every precaution we possibly could”.
Comprised of Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons, the Chemical Brothers said in a tweet today (Friday): “We are very sorry to announce that we won’t be DJing at Arcadia this evening at Glastonbury.
“We were so excited to be back in the fields and to celebrate the return of the festival, as we were to be playing in Cork on Thursday night.
“We were hoping that more days rest would allow Tom to recover from Covid this hasn’t so far been the case.
“We are hoping that Tom will recover in time to play the scheduled Castle Howard show in York on Sunday and will update with progress as soon as possible via our socials.
“We share the disappointment and frustration at not being able to do what we do with all of you. Love Is All. Tom & Ed.”
It is due to be the second big concert of the summer at Castle Howard, after the stately home hosted Eighties chart toppers Duran Duran last week.
