Drugstore have become the first band to fall victim of the petrol crisis in the UK, cancelling this evening’s show in BRISTOL because they don’t have sufficient fuel to get there.
The band were due to play the Bristol Fleece & Firkin tonight (September 13) as part of their UK tour with Seafruit and Headswim.
However, a spokesperson for Drugstore has revealed the band have been forced to be cancel the show as there is only half a tank of petrol left in their tour bus – sufficient to get them from Leeds, where they played last night (September 12), to the Princess Charlotte in Leicester for their gig tomorrow evening (September 14).
The band also have shows confirmed, fuel crisis permitting, at: Oxford Point (September 15) Colchester Arts Centre (17) Manchester Hop & Grape (25) Stoke Sugarmill (26) London Garage (27) Northampton Roadmenders (28)
Other bands who are either currently out on tour, or are due to start their tours throughout the UK seem less affected by the crisis. A spokesperson for Mel C, who is currently on a comprehensive UK tour, said there had been no problems at all, while a member of the Tailgunner‘s management, who play the first show of their UK tour in High Wycombe on Friday (September 15), said they wouldn’t be 100% sure until tomorrow if the gig would go ahead, but expected no problems.
Drugstore release a new single, ‘I Wanna Love You Like A Man’ on October 9 through Global Warming.
