Napalm Death V&A Show Cancelled Over 'Safety Concerns'

Napalm Death V&A Show Cancelled Over 'Safety Concerns' -

Napalm Death have been forced to cancel their Victoria and Albert Museum show over concerns of the buildings structural resilience.

The death-metal set were due to perform at the V&A Museum in South Kensington tomorrow (22nd March) for a one off experimental performance in collaboration with artist Keith Harrison, who is a resident ceramic artist at the V&A in South Kensington.

Before the concert was cancelled, Napalm Death's frontman, Mark "Barney" Greenway, said he was looking forward to it.

"Sound as a weapon - or a weapon of change - is a very interesting concept and I think that the whole process of our sound gradually degrading clay sculptures is captivating,"

A spokesperson from the V&A said the concert was cancelled "with regret".

"This was due to take place in the Europe Galleries which are currently being refurbished and a further safety inspection has revealed concerns that the high level of decibels generated by the performance would damage the historic fabric of the building."

"The safety of our visitors and building remains our priority at all times," they added.
