Punk-duo Slaves’ set at the LCR was cut short on 18th November after singer Isaac Holman took an ill-advised stage-dive, three songs before the end of the gig, which resulted in him dislocating his shoulder.
The band, who were recently nominated for the Mercury Prize and performed alongside Skepta at BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend May, played the venue as part of their UK tour.
In a statement on the band’s Facebook page, Holman wrote that he “can’t drum for the next few weeks or there is a good chance it will come out again and cause some serious long term damage”.
A statement released by the Union of UEA Students said that: “first aid were there in moments and he was given pain relief”.
The singer was taken straight to A&E but returned to the tour bus later that night in “good spirits”. As a result, the band have been forced to cancel upcoming tour dates in November, and as yet have not revealed if they will return to the LCR for another performance.
