The rockney duo, famed for hits including Gertcha, Sideboard Song, Rabbit, Ain’t No Pleasing You and Margate, were due to appear at the Wyllyotts Theatre on Friday, February 17.

However, the musical pair’s new Chas & Dave: The Fully Story Live show in Potters Bar, along with tour dates in Norwich and Milton Keynes, has now been called off following the pianist and singer’s cancer scare.

A statement on Chas & Dave’s website said: “Chas recently underwent hospital tests which have revealed cancer of the oesophagus.

“Luckily this has been spotted at an early stage and he’ll be undergoing treatment immediately.

“Chas expects to be back out on the road with Dave again soon, but in the meantime, the Potters Bar, Norwich, and Milton Keynes dates on the 17th, 18th, and 19th of February will need to be rescheduled.

“Apologies to ticket holders for the inconvenience.”

The statement added that venues will advise regarding rescheduling and refunds.

Chas & Dave song I’m Going Back was recently used for the Heathrow Christmas campaign.
