Rock band Kasabian were set to perform in Custom House Square in Belfast last night, but cancelled the gig just minutes before it was meant to go ahead.
The band took to twitter to inform fans of the cancellation just before 9pm, leaving fans hugely disappointed.
It is with great regret, due to illness, we cannot perform at Customs House Belfast tonight. Kasabian.
