Dr Hook featuring Ray Sawyer cancelled the remainder of its tour last month after Ray tripped and broke his arm at a garage in Swindon.

He explains: ‘We were travelling down for our next show at Torquay Princess Theatre and we stopped at the services near Swindon.

"On the way back to the tour bus I tripped on the kerb as I walked through the petrol pumps and the end result - my arm was broken. I was taken to Swindon hospital and operated on within 48 hours and luckily it was a ‘clean break’ so it was dealt with smoothly."

As a result, all the remaining eight tour dates had to be postponed until May, but Ray and the band are back next Friday.

Ray says the show will consist of "around 90 minutes of classic hits and album tracks and one or two surprises."

Ray added: "We are looking forward to doing this show in more ways than one and we definitely won’t be stopping at services on the way to Torquay. If we do, I won’t be getting out the tour bus."
