Example - Example Gig Axed

British hip-hop star Example was forced to cancel his gig in Swindon, England on Monday night (12Dec11) after the venue's roof started leaking.
Thousands of fans had already gathered at the Oasis Leisure Centre when officials announced the show would not be going ahead due to adverse weather conditions causing a risk of flooding.
But Example, real name Elliott Gleave, tried to console his devotees by spending an hour signing autographs outside the venue and chatting to the disappointed gig-goers.
He later took to Twitter.com to show his anger at the cancellation, writing, "Venue cancelled. They had a f**king hole in the roof! I was p**sed off."
Oasis manager Owen Williams says, "We did our best to repair the leak, but we have had to say after an hour of trying we are not going to be able to go ahead. We had a lot of unhappy people outside."
