Torrential rain makes it impossible for the gig to be staged...
Radiohead have been forced to scrap their gig tonight (June 14th) at the THEATRE ANTIQUE DE VAISON LA ROMANE in the South Of France after torrential rain made conditions impossible for them to play.
Yesterday’s gig, the band’s first of the Millennium, was played in the Theatre Antique D’Arles, a Roman ampitheatre.
A spokesperson for the band told nme.com: “The whole site is now flooded and there’s lightning and everything. The band had to pull the whole thing for safety reasons. They’re trying to reschedule the date as we speak.”
As exclusively revealed by nme.com yesterday, the band debuted seven new songs at their show in Arles last night – though even then, there were worries that rain might stop play, though the weather turned clement just before the band took to the stage.
