Fire damage at Afan Lido has forced The Lostprophets to cancel their scheduled show on Mon 1 Mar. Due to availability and scheduling the show has been moved to Cardiff International Arena on Sat 1 May.
Speaking to Buzz earlier today, Mike Lewis said:
“We had to cancel the Port Talbot gig after the fire there a few weeks back. At first we thought it wouldn’t affect us and it would go ahead as planned but unfortunately not. It’s a bummer as we were playing Wales on St David’s Day which would have been great, and the the last time we played Port Talbot it was awesome. Instead we’re gonna kick off the summer at the CIA on may 1st. Get involved.”
The band had been looking forward to the Port Talbot show as part of a homecoming that saw them play at their former secondary school Hawthorne High school last month. All tickets for the Afan Lido show remain valid for the Cardiff Arena show. For refunds, ticket holders are advised to go to their point of purchase. An interview with Mike and Ian will appear in the next issue of Buzz magazine, out early February.
