Slaves pull Glasgow gig after frontman dislocates shoulder while on stage

Band were performing in Norwich when Isaac Holman was injured

Slaves have been forced to cancel their gig in Glasgow tonight after frontman Isaac Holman was injured while on stage earlier this week.

The band were due to headline the O2 ABC in Glasgow tonight but will now reschedule the gig for a later date after Holman dislocated his shoulder while performing live in Norwich on Wednesday night. The lead singer and drummer is currently unable to play live with his bandmate, Laurie Vincent.

The band explained the situation with the following Facebook statement:

“During last nights show in Norwich unfortunately Isaac was badly injured on stage. He was seen immediately by doctors in hospital, and today was seen by a specialist who confirmed that along with dislocating his shoulder there is serious tissue damage that requires him to rest his arm to avoid permanent damage. Given that he can’t move his arm or drum, unfortunately we have to cancel tonights show in Glasgow and are looking into rescheduling the date asap. Sorry for the inconvenience to anyone who bought tickets and thank you all for your ongoing love. More details to follow soon.”
