Arthurs added that he would keep fans updated with his journey, but said he’s “gutted” to miss his upcoming shows with Gallagher. “Have the best summer and enjoy the gigs if you’re going, I’ll see you soon.”

Gallagher released a trio of solo songs earlier this year, “Better Days,” “C’mon You Know,” and “Everything’s Electric.” He’s set to release his next solo album, also titled C’mon You Know, on May 27.
