Ne-Yo postpones UK shows

Ne-Yo has postponed a series of UK shows so he can focus on completing his new album.

The singer was due to hit the road later in the month, but he has pulled three dates in Scotland and England to allow him extra time in the studio.

In a statement his representative said: 'With work on his fifth studio album going so well the American singer/songwriter could not interrupt the creative process.'

His shows in Manchester and London will go ahead as planned and the other shows will be rescheduled for the autumn.
