Dodgy have been forced to cancel their forthcoming reunion tour after lead guitarist Andy Miller fell out of bed and broke his arm.

Miller chipped a bone in his left forearm and has been ordered by doctors not to play the guitar for at least three weeks.

According to a statement, Miller is said to be “extremely gutted.”

The tour had been due to kick off in Glasgow last night (November 5th) but will now be rescheduled for early in the New Year, the statement added.

Speaking about Miller’s injury, the band said: “None of us can quite believe it. The day before our first show. I keep expecting Jeremy Beadle to pop out with a microphone.

"We all feel incredibly frustrated and despondent as the rehearsals last week were sounding absolutely amazing. The best we have ever sounded. We were all SO looking forward to these shows.

“Poor old Richard (Payne) came all the way from Australia to play with us so you can imagine how he feels. I'm not sure it's sunk in with him yet so if you see a tall angry keyboard player rampaging around Ruislip this weekend then you know who it is.”

The band’s affected shows are as follows: 

Glasgow ABC – November 5
Sheffield Leadmill – 6
Birmingham Academy 2 – 8
Manchester Academy 3 - 9
Liverpool Academy – 10
Northampton Roadmenders – 12
Bristol Academy – 13
Shepherd’s Bush Empire - 15
