The Flaming Lips were due to play at Aylesbury Friars

Friars Aylesbury bosses have postponed forthcoming concerts from The Flaming Lips and Big Big Train due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The news will come as an unwelcome but not-unexpected disappointment for fans who were looking forward to the bookings, both of which were a real coup for the town.

The Big Big Train date scheduled for 16 July 2020 and the Flaming Lips date scheduled for 24 July 2020 have both been put off, with new dates for 2021 set to be announced in the coming weeks.

Friars club co-founder David Stopps, who booked the gigs, said: "Tickets already purchased will be valid for the new dates so we would be extremely grateful if you would hang on to your tickets. Friars Aylesbury is really struggling at the moment as are all sectors of the live music industry and hanging on to your tickets would really help us survive. (which we’re determined to do).

"If that’s not possible please contact the ticket agency where you bought the tickets."

The next Friars Aylesbury date will be The Damned on 2nd November.
