Ida Maria left without band as bad weather strikes

Swedish starlet forced to play solo in Oxford

Ida Maria was forced to perform on her own last night (March 10) after her band were stranded in Sweden due to bad weather.

The singer’s backing trio were not allowed to fly due to the inclement conditions, so missed their appearance supporting Guillemots at Oxford‘s Carling Academy yesterday.

Maria performed solo, however, playing guitar and, on some songs, bass.


The band will reportedly be reunited with their singer tonight (March 11) at London‘s Shepherd’s Bush Empire.
