Mumford and Sons have announced that they postponed several dates of their UK tour.

The band took to social media to announce the devastating news to their fans.

The tour, which kicked off in Dublin last week, was scheduled to finish up in Liverpool on 2 December.

That last show has now been shifted back to 2019, alongside dates in Manchester (originally 21 November), Sheffield (24 November) and Cardiff (28 November).

Taking to Instagram on Monday they admitted that they were sharing the news with a a really heavy heart.

The groups statement reads: Dear friends, It is with a really heavy heart that we have been forced to postpone four shows on this UK four due to unforseen technical and logistical challenges

As you may know, the Delta Tour is by far the most ambitious show weve put together and we have had to free up some space in the schedule to be able to execute it, given some obstacles that have come up in production.

As we also hope you know by now, we never postpone shows lightly, in fact its something we try to avoid at all costs – so this decision has been incredibly difficult to make but in this case we have no other choice. The truth is that it is simply not humanly possible to play these particular shows at this time and we are sorry the reality of that only truly landed after we completed Belfast yesterday.

We are therefore rescheduling our Liverpool, Cardiff, Sheffield and Manchester shows to 2019, and will share information on the new dates very soon.
