Resurrected rockers Embrace performed an illegal London gig on Thursday (26AUG04), but fled in horror when police arrived to shut it down.

The British band - who release their comeback single GRAVITY on Monday (30AUG04) - told their fan club about the secret show in the capital's Leicester Square and anxiously performed a selection of their hit songs before police arrived, forcing them to escape to a nearby radio station to avoid arrest.

A shocked fan explains, "The band heard a police siren so they legged it into a radio station around the corner for shelter, because they were scared of being taken away in handcuffs."
