Wild Beasts in, Danananaykroyd out at Summer Sundae

United Kingdom United Kingdom | by Francis Whittaker | 04 August 2009

The band have pulled out due to an injury sustained by drummer/singer John Baillie Junior during a show in Australia.

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.
