BBC Radio 2 Live has been cancelled as 'a mark of respect' following the death of the Queen, the BBC has confirmed.

The music weekend was due to make a welcomed return for 2022 following last year's four post-lockdown intimate gigs.

But organisers have just released a statement to confirm that the gigs, which were due to take place at Leeds Temple Newsam over the weekend of September 17-18, 2022 - have been cancelled - with ticket holders advised on how to get refunds.

The statement reads, "Following the very sad news of the death of Her Majesty The Queen, as a mark of respect, BBC Radio 2 Live in Leeds will now not take place on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th September. Ticket holders will be issued with refunds via their ticket provider."

A whole host of artists were due to take to the stage including Robbie Williams, Craig David, and Olly Murs.
