American rockers The Walkmen have been forced to scrap an appearance at U.K. music festival The Great Escape after their flight from the U.S. was cancelled.
The band was scheduled to appear at the event in Brighton, south England on Thursday (13May10) but they axed their slot just hours before they were due on stage due to a travel issue.
The musicians' plane was held on the runway ahead of their scheduled departure from America before the flight was cancelled altogether, according to NME.com.
However, the band is expected to make it to Britain to play at the All Tomorrow's Parties festival in Minehead, south-west England on Friday (14May10).
