Kings Of Leon - Kings Of Leon O2 Arena Show Cancelled After Bus Fire

Kings of Leon's final performance of 2010 at London's 02 Arena was cancelled yesterday (21.12.10) after a bus fire.

The 'Sex On Fire' hitmakers were hit by disaster at around 8.30 yesterday morning when the concert venue had to be evacuated after two of the band's buses caught fire while equipment was being set up for what would have been their farewell show.

A statement from the venue read: "Unfortunately, due to this morning's fire on board one of the tour buses at The O2, tonight's Kings of Leon concert will now be postponed.

"Whilst there is no damage to The O2 there is now insufficient time to rig the arena for tonight's performance. We are sorry for the inconvenience and we will announce a new date shortly."

As the venue's sprinkler system had been triggered by the blaze, the crew did not have sufficient time to set up for the show, forcing the band to pull the plug on the gig.

It is not yet known what when the rescheduled show will take place.
