BLUE REGRETTABLY CANCEL "BEST OF BLUE" TOUR Blue have announced that their "Best Of Blue" tour, due to take place in March and April 2005, has been cancelled. The tour was due to appear at the Metro Radio Arena on 23rd March 2005. Lee has been advised by throat specialists in Los Angeles that he must rest his voice for six to eight weeks because he has developed nodules on his throat. The band are extremely disappointed and saddened to cancel the tour. The band are also upset that their fans have had to endure the frustration of not knowing whether the tour would be going ahead over the past few weeks and would like to apologise for keeping them waiting - every possibility was explored and second medical opinions sought before coming to the sad decision to have to cancel the tour. Lee says, "I am gutted and very sorry to disappoint all our fans. The situation is unavoidable as I have been told by doctors that if the tour takes place I risk permanently damaging my voice. It's terrible timing and I'm very upset." Blue's management are exploring possibly rescheduling the dates for later in the year, however ticket holders who to wish to obtain a full refund should return their tickets to the point of purchase.
