Boogie woogie maestro Jools Holland will not be making his usual appearance in Bradford later this year, due to a “logistical” issue.

Prior to last autumn’s concert at St George's Hall, the pianist, songwriter, bandleader and broadcaster told the Telegraph & Argus it was one of his favourite venues. “If we were going to do a tour DVD I'd want it filmed there," he said. "It's like an old music hall, there's something Wild West about it too. You can't beat playing somewhere that's seen lots of different performers over the years."

But Bradford Theatres general manager Adam Renton confirmed Jools Holland and his Rhythm and Blues Orchestra will not be playing there this year.

He said: "Due to the logistics of routing the Jools Holland tour around the UK, it has not been possible to find a date which matches with the availability of the venue and with their routing.”
