Jungle keep crowd waiting before pulling Cambridge show due to ‘technical difficulties’

The band have now rescheduled the gig for November 13

Jungle have rescheduled the Cambridge date on their current UK tour after cancelling at the last minute on Tuesday night (October 28).

The band were due to headline the Cambridge Junction venue, but failed to emerge for their set, despite hundreds of fans having arrived and watched support acts DD Dmbo and Eyedress perform. “Technical difficulties” have been blamed for the band’s failure to perform on the night.

One fan at the show told NME a member of the venue’s staff made the crowd aware of the postponement, more than a hour after Jungle were due to go onstage. The announcement was reportedly met with boos from the audience.


A statement from the band via Facebook ensures fans that the gig will now take place on November 13 and that the new date is the soonest they could find in their schedule.

“We will be back at the Junction on Thursday 13th November, we really hope we’ll see you all there and will do everything in our power to make it up to you,” the statement reads. “All original tickets will still be valid. We’re really sorry to anyone who can’t make the new date refunds are available from point of purchase.”

Jungle are nominated for this year’s Mercury Prize, the winner of which will be announced today (October 29). Their UK tour continues this month with three dates left to play, plus the rescheduled Cambridge gig.

Jungle will play:

London, Shepherds Bush Empire (October 30)
Brighton, Concorde 2 (November 3)
Bristol, Anson Rooms (4)
Cambridge, Junction (13)
