Fans of the reformed US rap group were left disappointed after 30-year-old McCoy was taken to hospital with abdominal pains just before the band were due to play the University of Hertfordshire venue's weekly club night Bonk on Wednesday.

Refunds will also be available to those that cannot make the re-arranged date.

McCoy was taken to the QE2 Hospital in WGC at around 1am on Thursday, just before the group were about to take to the stage.

The statement added: "Our thoughts are with Travie and we wish him a speedy recovery."
