Björk's concert in Cornwall is being moved because of' unforseen logistical issues'.

The singer is playing the Eden Sessions this summer, as one of only two UK gigs this year.

Her other appearance will be at the new All Points East festival in London's Victoria Park over the May bank holiday weekend.

But now it has revealed that the sold out gig will take place on Saturday 7th July - rather than the original date of Wednesday 20th June.

Bosses have apologised for the inconvenience and people can apply for refunds if they wish.

A spokesperson said: "Due to unforeseen logistical issues in Björk’s touring diary we are sorry to announce that her sold-out show at the Eden Project will now be held on Saturday July 7th and not on Wednesday June 20th as previously announced.

"All existing tickets are valid for the new date.

"However, if ticket purchasers are unable to attend on July 7th, they can get a full refund by emailing boxoffice@edenproject.com, providing the booking reference and a daytime contact number.

"All requests for refunds must be made by midnight on March 12th.

"We are very sorry for any inconvenience and now look forward to the big event on July 7th."

Over a career spanning four decades, Björk has developed a unique style which takes in pop, electronic, classical, trip hop and avant-garde styles.

Björk came to fame as the lead singer of the alt-rock group The Sugarcubes before going solo in 1993 and winning massive acclaim with albums such as Debut (1993), Post (1995) and Homogenic (1997).

She has had 30 singles reach the top 40 on pop charts around the world, with 22 top 40 hits in the UK. These include the top 10 hits It's Oh So Quiet, Army of Me and Hyperballad.

The video is directed by Tim Walker and Emma Dalzell, featuring makeup by Hungry, and shot in one single take in Iceland...

Among many accolades, Björk has won five BRIT Awards, four MTV Video Music Awards, one MOJO Award, three UK Music Video Awards and 21 Icelandic Music Awards.

Her latest release Blissing Me is the second single to come from her forthcoming ninth studio album Utopia. The album is due out on Friday November 24th.
