glitch cancels rock
concert at Burnham-On-Sea's
live rock music concert due to be held at The Princess in Burnham-On-Sea
this coming Saturday (May 16th) has been cancelled due to technical
guitarist Larry Miller and his band, which includes support from
local musician Cliff Moore (pictured), were due to perform.
the organisers said on Wednesday (May 114th) that the hall's electrical
system, which was installed in 1994, is inadequate to cope with
the planned concert.
Sedgemoor District Council, the owners of the hall, are working
to get the system upgraded, the organisers have pulled the plug
on the event because the work may not be carried out on time.
spokesman told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "It was with enormous
regret that we felt we had to cancel. As
the performers in this case were coming from a considerable distance
away from Burnham especially for this event, we felt it was unfair
to expect them to commit at 24 hours notice to a concert that
might not take place."
is vitally important to us that the events at the Princess are
special and a cut above the usual offerings in the town. Without
the right equipment, we could not do this."
