LEEDS FESTIVAL: Pulled Apart By Horses Withdraw

Leeds rockers PULLED APART BY HORSES were forced to withdraw from their home town festival just an hour before their scheduled set. The band; who were set to play the Main Stage at 12:55pm, were already on site when bassist Rob Lee collapsed.

A statement from the band read:

[quote style=’1′ cite=”]Sadly we have had to pull our set at Leeds Festival today. Rob collapsed due to illness around 1 hour before we were due on stage which meant he was unable to perform.He is in very capable hands right now and being well looked after.

We’re massively sorry about being unable to perform in our home town and we’ll be back very soon. Thanks guys we hope you understand and we hope you have a great festival.[/quote]

The Leeds band were set to play the closing day of the duel-site event; with Arctic Monkeys, Jake Bugg, Bombay Bicycle Club and Foster the People all set to play in Leeds today.
