Royal Blood cancels its show in Paris after a truck carrying equipment was blocked by protesters Brighton News

A BAND has canceled a show in France after a truck carrying its equipment was blocked by protesters.

Brighton-formed rock duo Royal Blood have announced that their show at the Zenith in Paris will no longer take place as French transporters are blocking roads across the country in protest at rising fuel prices.

In a social media post, the band said: “We regret to inform you that due to protests from some road hauliers in France, the show at the Zénith de Paris cannot take place.

“Since 7am, the trucks carrying all the Royal Blood material have been blocked in a petrol station near Paris, and despite the efforts of the promoter and the police, the demonstrators will not let the trucks go.

“This is a huge disappointment for all of us and we are truly sorry for any inconvenience this will cause.

“Our teams are currently working to reschedule this concert.”

Those who had tickets to see the band, which includes Mike Kerr and Ben Thatcher, were asked to hold onto their tickets until a new date for the show was announced.

Earlier this year Royal Blood were forced to cancel part of their European tour due to Covid-19.

The duo also stopped performing at Park Live Festival in Moscow, Russia due to the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.

While the band formed in Brighton, Mike grew up in Worthing and Ben in Rustington.
