After injury caused a two-month postpopnement of their UK tour, Dr Hook will be coming to the Apex in Bury St Edmunds on May 13.

The American rock band’s 2015 UK tour was cut short in March when frontman Ray Sawyer broke his arm.

On the way to a show in Torquay, the eye-patched lead singer tripped off a kerb at a service station near Swindon and was rushed to hospital for surgery on his appendage, which had luckily suffered a ‘clean break’.

Of his injury, Ray said: “Thankfully the operation in Swindon hospital went well and I have spent a lot of time resting.”

Having rescheduled the remaining eight gigs, including in Bury St Edmunds, Ray said he is looking forward to recommencing the action.

“The shows were going great and there was a buzz around them. We’re looking forward to doing this show in more ways than one,” he said.

Ticket-holders can expect around 90 minutes of classic hits and album tracks with a few surprises thrown in.

When asked about his 40-year career and performances with Dr Hook, Ray said: “I still get the satisfaction as I always have performing the hits and hearing audiences sing along.

“It’s also interesting to see a mixed audience with the younger generation getting into the songs.”
