Wild Beasts in, Danananaykroyd out at Summer Sundae
Injury forces Scots out of Leicester festival
Francis Whittaker on 04 August 2009
The band have pulled out due to an injury sustained by drummer/singer John Baillie Junior during a show
Baillie Junior collided with a photographer's tripod after falling into the audience at a gig at the Annandale Hotel in Sydney, meaning Wild Beasts - who released their critically acclaimed 'Two Dancers' album this week - will take their place on the Rising Stage at De Montford Hall and Gardens on 15 August.
Baillie Junior said of the incident: “I hit the floor with my entire body weight on my out stretched elbow, forcing it the wrong way (“hyper-extended” I’ve since learned) I heard a ‘click’ and felt immediate pain.”
Summer Sundae Weekender 2009 takes place between 14-16 August and will feature sets by The Charlatans, The Zutons, The Streets and Bon Iver.
