Enter Shikari had to cancel a gig at the Empress Ballroom in Blackpool on Saturday (January 6) due to health and safety officials deeming the venue unsafe for the performance.

During the band's soundcheck in the afternoon the officers, examining structural issues with the building, made the decision to pull the gig.

The band have announced that they are planning to reschedule the show – although it will not take place in the Empress Ballroom and maybe not even in Blackpool.

They said they were, “Gutted... It looked and sounded incredible in there, and indeed it would have gone off big time, were the show to go ahead as planned.”

The tour continues at the Middlesbrough Empire venue tomorrow (9).
