RAPPER Stormzy's sold-out Hydro show has been postponed to 2021 because of the coronavirus pandemic. 

The star was expected to play the city venue on September 10. He will now play the show on April 5 as part of his Heavy is the Head world tour.

The show's promoter said: "Unfortunately, due to the ongoing Coronavirus Pandemic and restrictions on live concerts, we need to consider everyone’s welfare and therefore have no choice but to reschedule the record breaking Stormzy H.I.T.H UK Tour from autumn 2020 to April 2021.

"As you can imagine, with numerous other artist tours already booked and many more wanting to reschedule their tours in that period, the dates available at the venues were limited and this has meant that, in some cases, the equivalent day of the week to the original date wasn’t always free.

"Tickets remain valid for the new dates. If you have any queries, please contact your point of purchase."
