Due to the delay of the release of his new album Professor Green's 12 date November headline tour has been postponed until May 2014.
A recent car accident which left Stephen having to recuperate has meant valuable studio time to finish the record was lost. With sessions now resumed to complete the record, scheduled now for 2014, the only decision was to move the tour:
On having to postpone the tour, Professor Green said, "Firstly, I can't apologise enough for postponing the tour, I'm as excited to see you all as I hope you are me! Everything was on schedule and then I was unfortunate enough to end up sandwiched between two cars leaving my health and album/touring schedule in absolute jeopardy.
"I want to make the best possible album I can for you all and I want you to have heard the new music so as we can all enjoy the shows how they're meant to be enjoyed. I could have rushed an album for the sake of making the tour but as I hope you all know I'm in this for the music and am not willing to let it suffer due to a date in the diary.
"I promise you all it'll be worth the wait, and there'll be some bits and bobs in the meantime to bridge the gap... and a new F64.
"Apologies for the inconvenience, I'll see you soon x"
