A veteran musician due to perform tomorrow at a sold out concert at the Cork Opera House has had to cancel due to a swelling of his vocal chords.

Colm Wilkinson was due to perform on Wednesday 15 February 2017 but has pulled out of the concert on medical advice.

"Colm saw throat specialist, Professor Con Timon, at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Dublin today and was advised no full voice use or singing for the foreseeable future so that his vocal cords can heal properly," a statement issued on his behalf read.

"Colm will make a full recovery and return to the stage as soon as he possibly can. Colm is very disappointed."

The legendary singer, who will be forever synonymous with Les Miserables, the blockbusting 80s musical in which he played the original Jean Valjeanfrom, originally postponed the shows last September to allow him to recover from a back operation.

People have been asked to contact The Cork Opera House on: 021 427 0022  for full ticket refund.
