Kasabian Cancel Belfast Gig Due To "illness"
23 August 2017, 09:53
The For Crying Out Loud outfit were due to play the city's Customs House Square last night.
Kasabian cancelled their show in Belfast on Tuesday night (22 August).
The band - who are made up of Tom Meighan, Sergio Pizzorno, Chris Edwards and Ian Matthews - revealed "illness" was to blame for them cancelling the gig, just minutes before they were due to take to the stage at Custom House Square in the Northern Irish capital city.
A message on their official Twitter account posted shortly before 9pm read: "It is with great regret, due to illness, we cannot perform at Customs House Belfast tonight. Kasabian."

Fans were urged to keep hold of their tickets as they will be valid for a rescheduled date when it is scheduled.
In a statement to the Belfast Telegraph, organisers said: "We are working on scheduling a new date for Belfast. We will communicate with all ticket buyers via Ticketmaster and on the Custom House Square social media.
"Tickets remain valid for the new date. We apologise for any inconvenience caused."
The illness must have come suddenly, as the rockers shared their excitement for the show the previous day, with a tweet which read: "Tokyo to Belfast, buzzing for tomorrow!"

Hopefully, the Ez-Eh rockers will have recovered in time for their headline show at Reading & Leeds festival this weekend, where they'll headline alongside Muse and Eminem.
