We wish to apologise to all ticket holders for any inconvenience caused - Jay thanks you all for the continued support and understanding:
“Hi - Jay here,
It is with great regret that again I have to disappoint people due to the ongoing problem with my back. I have never felt so frustrated with a situation as I feel now, and I am desperate to get back to form. After two operations I am only marginally more active, and I know I could never give the 125% energy I need to give to you good people a super show. I am a proud man, and it breaks my heart to have to keep moving these performances and asking for people’s patience. I am distraught at this and am feeling very low.
2017 is turning out to be a tough year, with the loss of several close friends in quick succession and the inability to perform properly in the way I’ve been doing, and the only way I know how to, since I did my first gig at 17 years old.
I want to thank all of you for the messages of support you have sent me. I can’t quite believe how kind you all are. A thousand thanks.
I want to apologise to all of you who have no doubt made travel plans and taken time out to see us in Paris, Athens and London O2, but I give you my word - I promise you I will come back and give you the shows you deserve. Faster, harder and stronger.
Thank you all so much once again for your unerring love and patience, your posts have really picked me up.
From a very wounded Buffalo.
Lots of love,
Here at The O2, we're sorry that the gigs have been moved and wish Jay Kay a speedy recovery. As we know he’d want, the celebrations are set to continue and for our birthday week, we’re transforming The O2 into a giant birthday party to thank all the fans for their support over the past 10 years. The O2 Birthday gift box is in place all week including the 23 and 24 June (the Jamiroquai postponed show dates), where you'll have the opportunity to win amazing prizes in our live-streamed game show hosted by Vernon Kay.
We can’t wait to have Jay Kay and the band back later in the year and promise we’ll keep the party going for them.”
