Mike Skinner AKA The Streets had to cancel his show at the London 02 Brixton Academy last night as the entire venue suffered from a power failure.
Fans lined the streets throughout the day and night, waiting for the Academy doors to open but unfortunately and unbeknownst to them, this night would end differently and much less exciting than expected. Around 8.30pm and whilst fans still huddled around the venue, Skinner posted a blog on his Myspace:
"Tonight's Brixton show has been cancelled due to a power cut. Gutted. Not sure what to say really. I was really excited, turned up and no lights in the whole building. They [venue staff] phoned the power company, who weren't very helpful unfortunately. I'll keep you all posted but the sight of you all outside queuing is heartbreaking."
If you were one of the aforementioned unlucky fans then hold on to your tickets as re-scheduled dates are no doubt on the horizon.
