They said: ‘Unfortunately, due to illness, the remaining dates for Il Divo’s December 2021 UK tour have been postponed until December 2022. 

‘Il Divo are deeply sorry to their fans, but look forward to returning to the road in the new year and seeing you all in the run up to next Christmas.’

The group are also considered the pioneers of operatic pop, or popera, and their live concerts have sold more than two million tickets worldwide.

Last month a 72-year-old woman from Barcelona was convicted of coercion and fined €60 for sending Carlos explicit and threatening letters.

According to The Olive Press, Marin’s lawyer filed an appeal against the sentence, noting he’d had to change his ‘work and life habits.’
