As It Is have postponed tonight's show in Cardiff after Patty Walters was diagnosed with a blood clot in his shoulder.
“It pains us to have to do this, but unfortunately tonight’s show in Cardiff will not be going ahead,” the band shared in a statement on Twitter.
“Yesterday, on our day off in Cardiff, Patty woke to find his right arm swollen and discoloured. He immediately checked into A+E in Cardiff, and after a long day of tests and scans was diagnosed with a blood clot in his shoulder.”
They explain that Walters was back in the hospital consulting with a specialist team, and the team instructed that he should not play tonight to recover fully.
