Ex-Smiths drummer Mike Joyce’s gig at the Citadel in St Helens has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.

The indie legend was due to perform a DJ set at the Waterloo Street arts centre on Saturday night (September 6).

But bosses at the theatre today (Wednesday) announced the set had been pulled.

Local band Titors Insignia were also scheduled to perform on the night.

A Citadel spokesman said: “We are currently working on a rescheduled date for 2015 and will publicise this in due course.

“All customers who have bought tickets will be informed and issued with a full refund.

“The Citadel apologises for any disappointment or inconvenience caused.”
