Rockers Pulled Apart By Horses axed their set at Britain's Leeds Festival on Sunday (24Aug14) just minutes before they were due on stage.

The band was slated to play at the Leeds, England leg of the two-site event following a set in Reading, England on Saturday (23Aug14), but fans were informed of the cancellation while they waited for the group to walk on stage.

A message posted on the big screens put the scrapped gig down to "unforeseen circumstances", but a member of the group's crew reportedly took to the microphone to tell the booing crowd the set had been called off due to illness.

No further details were available as Wenn went to press.
