Neck Deep Release Statement Regarding Cancelled Show
Neck Deep cancelled their show last night (October 9) after being involved with altercations with security guards at Nottingham’s Rock City.
They were playing their headline set at the venue when the show was brought to an abrupt end. The band have now released a statement regarding the events and how they’re looking to reschedule the show.
Read the statement below:
A Neck Deep show – any show for that matter – should be a protected and positive environment, where everyone is safe and free to enjoy music being played.
The safety of our fans is our number one priority, but no-one involved in a show should EVER be in fear of harm or injury – be that fans, crew, venue staff, security or the band.
The events that transpired last night were regretful and deeply unfortunate. Things rapidly escalated to a point that they should never have gotten to. We believe that violence is never a solution, and that everything that went down could and should have been handled better by all parties.
We are so very sorry to anyone who was in any way hurt, upset or inconvenienced last night.
All scheduled tour dates will go ahead as planned, and we will be taking extra measures to ensure that these events are never again repeated.
For everyone in attendance last night, we are working on a rescheduled date for you, and we will ensure that your original tickets will remain valid / be reissued.
Thank you all for reading and for your understanding.
