Keyboardist forced to flee stage mid-set

Shout Out Louds keyboardist Bebban Stenborg was taken ill midway through his band’s set at the Leeds Cockpit venue on Saturday (April 5), forcing the band to abandon their set 35 minutes into the show.

Stenborg has since issued an apology to fans via the band’s MySpace page.

“Hello people of Leeds,” he wrote. “My sincere apologies for the show cut short in your fair city. I was abominably under the weather, hence to blame for the untimely demise of the performance. I will do my absolute best make it up to you all on our next visit.”

The band continue their tour tomorrow (April 8) the the Dublin Village venue.

Shout Out Louds play:
