Bassist Steve Mackey will not make an appearance at the upcoming shows. He posted a statement on his socials, which read: "PULP is a very important part of my creative life... and I'm exceptionally proud of the body of work we've created together.

"Jarvis and  I remastered  Pulp's entire Universal Records back catalogue together  just over two years ago at Abbey Road Studios. It was a huge pleasure to do that and review our songs and recordings together.

"There have been wide reports of a full reunion for UK concerts today. However I've decided to continue the work I’m engaged in - music, filmmaking and photography projects,  and will not be joining  them for these UK  shows just announced

"Wishing  Candy, Nick, Mark and Jarvis the very best with forthcoming performances and also an enormous thanks to Pulp’s amazing fanbase, many of whom have sent me lovely messages today".
