On a night filled with thunder and lightning local Belfast band The Pottingers, stepped out and stole the thunder from English rockers Kasabian with an impromptu performance in the centre of Belfast.
The Pottingers treated disappointed Kasabian fans who were left out in the cold without a performance from the rockband, to a cover of Kasabian megahit L.S.F. A crowd gathered around the Belfast boys outside of McDonalds, on Royal Avenue and joined them in singing the 2004, number 10 hit.
Stole the show on Kasabian tonight. #makingthebestofashitsituation

Kasabian were originally set to play on Wednesday 23 August before rescheduling the concert with promoters to allow for them to headline at this weekend’s Reading Leeds Festivals. However the new date, did not go as planned last night as in the moments leading up to their arrival on stage the band were forced to abandon ship in the stormy weather, due to lead singer Tom Meighan taking ill. Tom suffered a bout of severe vomiting leading to the Leicestershire native being taken to a nearby hospital for medical attention.
Were you in attendance last night? Don’t get too downhearted, Custom House Square have advised all ticket holders to keep hold of their tickets from last night and are working with the bands management to reschedule the event for a later date.
Please stand by for rescheduled show info – thanks for your patience. pic.twitter.com/9M6n280FnF
