Lionel Richie has put recording work on hold and had to pull out of this weekend’s Radio 2 Live In Hyde Park concert because of ill-health.

The singer said in a statement: “The [Hyde Park] show has a fantastic line up and I was looking forward to joining the other artists on what promises to be a fabulous day of entertainment. To all the fans that bought tickets I promise to be back very soon and make up for it with something very special”.
