Amy Macdonald has announced that her gig in Glasgow on Friday has been postponed until next year.

The singer-songwriter apologised to fans, but said that the safety of fans and crew has to come first.

It is the latest event to be cancelled in Scotland after Deacon Blue and Del Amitri postponed their gigs which were due to take place this weekend.

Increasing concern over the Omicron variant has caused events to be rescheduled.

Macdonald on Tuesday told fans that her gig would be going ahead.

But in a statement on Twitter on Thursday, she wrote: “I’m so sorry to everyone – we tried everything to make the gig happen.

“We were left stuck between a rock and a hard place, but ultimately the safety of the fans and crew has to come first.

“This has been such a stressful week for me and all of my team and we’re so sorry not to be able to put on a show for you tomorrow.

“Have a wonderful Christmas, here’s hoping 2022 is a little brighter – we’ll see you in March.”

An official statement from the promoter read: “DF Concerts and OVO Hydro announce that Amy Macdonald’s sold out show at OVO Hydro, Glasgow due to take place on Friday 17th December 2021 has been rescheduled and will now take place on 18th March 2022.

“It’s been a difficult 22 months for music fans, musicians and crew and following today’s announcements, in order to make sure fan safety and enjoyment is at the heart of the gig, the show has been rescheduled to March 2022.

“All fans are advised to hold on to their ticket which will be valid for the new date.”
