A leaky roof forced Example to cancel a 'gig' in Swindon shortly before he was due to go on stage last night.
The Swindon Advertiser reports that 3000 fans were left waiting outside while repair crews worked to mend a hole in the roof of the prestigious Swindon Oasis Centre. Example let down his fans on Twitter saying, "tonight's gig is cancelled. Huge apologies. The venue won't let us play as there is a hole in the roof and it's stormy".
The health and safety conscious artiste added: "HUGE FUCK OFF STORM + HOLE IN ROOF + ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT = POTENTIAL FOR FINAL DESTINATION TYPE GIG."
According to the Swindon Advertiser, he spent "about an hour", meeting fans outside, signing autographs and apologising for the cancellation. He promised, "soon as I have news on the rescheduling will let you know. Huge apologies to everyone waiting in the rain. Nothing I can do".
The Example tour continues tonight in the watertight Cambridge Corn Exchange.
