The Vaccines call it an early night in Blackburn after barrier woes

The Vaccines cancelled their show midway through at Blackburn's King George's Hall last night (Monday 28th Jan) because of venue safety worries.

“The decision to stop the show was not ours,” the band said, “but the safety barrier in the venue kept collapsing and if we had continued people would undoubtedly have been seriously injured.”

Check out their full statement below - they’ve promised to reschedule so they can “finish what we started”.
