the band had to return to the original plan & play only the instrumental Film Scores set in the recent 2 or 3 shows – and it doesn’t look good for the rest of the tour, as Stuart A. Staples is suffering from Laryngitis and has lost his voice. So don’t expect a lot of old tindersticks classics being played (or sung by Stuart) – Get well soon.
from the Gateshead website: “We are sorry to report that Stuart Staples, the lead singer has laryngitis and will not be able to do the song set that was added on to the original, and largely instrumental, film set programme. The programme will therefore revert back to the original film score set only.”
