London (ANI): Rock band Kings Of Leon has apologised to their Spanish fans for not being able to perform at Benicassim Festival due to heavy thunderstorms. The group was supposed to play in an outdoor concert on July 17, until the last minute when the sets got scrapped as the town was hit by a storm, the Daily Express reports.
The organisers hoped to reschedule it the next day but unfortunately for the fans stage equipment had already been shipped to Switzerland for a rock show at the Gurtenfestival on July19.
However, Drummer Nathan Followill posted on Twitter: "I'm sad to say that we aren't playing Benicassim. We are so sorry and bummed about last night. Our gear is already headed to Switzerland."
Another band, 'Maximo Park' was also scheduled to perform in the rain-spoilt concert.
