The band last played in their home town nearly 25 years ago
A free show by the Manic Street Preachers in their home town of Blackwood will go ahead after all.
The gig planned for the town's Miners Institute on 2 December was postponed because vocalist James Dean Bradfield was suffering from laryngitis.
Tickets for the original concert are still valid for the rescheduled date of Thursday 27 January.
The show in front of 180 people is due to be recorded for broadcast by BBC Radio 2 which distributed the tickets.
Speaking when the concert was first announced, bass player Nicky Wire said the Manics were looking forward to playing their home town for the first time in nearly 25 years.
"We are thrilled and excited to be returning to a venue where we have spent many hours honing our snooker skills, but this was before it became a live venue," he said.
"It will be the smallest gig that we have played in a long time which will no doubt lead to chaos, severe nerves, but hopefully a night of home town ecstasy."
The concert will be
streamed live on Radio 2
and it will be available on the red button on 28 January.
