LEA Salonga, "the original Miss Saigon", is postponing her debut British tour after breaking a leg.

The singer and musical actress, from Manila, Philippines, now will play York Barbican on July 18, rather than on March 2.

Salonga, 47, says: "I want to thank all the friends and fans for your supportive and encouraging messages since my fall on the slopes. I’ll be at home resting and healing for the next few weeks but I can’t wait to get back to the UK and see you all this summer. I’m so grateful to everyone who has made quickly rescheduling my first UK tour possible."

All tickets remain valid for the new date. Those needing a refund or requiring more information should contact their point of purchase.

Tickets are on sale at yorkbarbican.co.uk, on 0844 854 2757 or in person from the Barbican box office.
