Meanwhile, Kasabian have spoken out after they cancelled their gig at Customs House Belfast earlier this week (Aug 22).

Taking to Twitter to share the news, the band wrote: “It is with great regret, due to illness, we cannot perform at Customs House Belfast tonight. Kasabian.”

However, the band have now explained their decision to cancel the show so close to stage time.

“Absolutely gutted to have to cancel last night’s show in Belfast,” said the band in a statement. “We were all at Custom House Square, ready to go on stage when Tom suddenly went down with sever vomiting and could hardly stand up, let alone sing.

“He was taken to hospital, put on a drip and told to rest up. We had no option but to cancel and we’re sorry to our fans and anyone that travelled a long way.”

The band added: “Thank you so much for all your messages of support. Details on the rescheduled date to follow soon.”
