Tonight’s Beady Eye gig in Belgium cancelled through injury
Beady Eye have cancelled their gig at the Lokerse Feesten tonight because of an injury to guitarist Gem Archer, reports the NME. The Liam Gallagher-fronted band were expected to play the festival, before flying out to Japan for the Summer Sonic festival in Tokyo. A statement from the band's management read: "Due to guitarist Gem Archer's injury, the band regret to inform fans that they will be cancelling their upcoming shows in Belgium and Japan until further notice. They are very sorry for any disappointment this will cause but as Gem is an integral part of the band there is no way that they can play without him. An update on Gem's condition will follow." Beady Eye will be replaced by White Lies. The other acts on the bill tonight are Primal Scream, The Fratellis, Magnus and Soja.
