The forth-coming REM show in Cardiff has been moved to a smaller venue due to poor ticket sales.

The date, originally scheduled for the Millennium Stadium, will now take place at the International Arena after only just over half the tickets for the larger venue were sold.

The capacity for the outdoor gig is 35,000, with just around 18,000 bought at the time of the change.

Those with tickets already have been given the chance of a refund if they don’t wish to attend the CIA gig.

The full REM UK tour now runs as follows:

24, Manchester Lancashire County Cricket Club
25, Cardiff International Arena
27, Southampton Rose Bowl
30, London Twickenham Stadium
