Brighton band forced to recruit stand-in for festival set

The Kooks play on without injured member at T In The Park
The Kooks played a Main Stage set in the sunshine at T In The Park this evening (12 July), despite one of their members missing due to injury.

Frontman Luke Pritchard introduced stand-in drummer 'Nick' to the audience, before playing a set including 'You Don't Love Me' and 'Ooh La'.

"Paul [Garred, drummer] has fucked his arm," Pritchard explained.

Towards the end of the set the band left the stage, leaving their frontman played acoustic versions of 'Seaside' and 'See The Sun' solo.

His bandmates then rejoined him on the final song, 'Always Where I Need To Be', which ended with Pritchard descending from the stage to dive on top of the front row of the crowd.
