A BLACK Country music venue has announced tonight’s (Thursday) gig by blues-rock guitarist Eric Sardinas has been cancelled.

Mike Hamblett, from the Robin 2, Bilston, said: “Eric has broken his leg and the US airline company have lost in transit, his prized steel resonator guitar and luggage, so he is very sadly stranded in Italy with a broken leg, no luggage and no guitars.

“On behalf of Eric, his US agent sends his sincere apologies. Everyone involved is quite devastated by the unfortunate situation.”

Anyone with tickets can get refunds from the Mount Pleasant venue’s box office.
