Frontman Mick Hucknall previously said: "We held on for as long as we could wishing that things would return to some semblance of normality.

"My voice is in great shape, we were ready and raring to go in the hope that we might cheer you up by performing some of your favourite songs.

"However, it's not clear that our tour in the autumn must be put back to next year.

"See you in 2021 when hopefully the world will have this virus under better control."

Simply Red are best known for hits Stars, Holding Back the Years and Something Got Me Started.
