Napalm Death V&A show cancelled

Gigs & Festivals

Napalm Death

Hey, remember that show Napalm Death were meant to be playing at London’s V&A? The one with the porcelain speakers designed by artist Keith Harrison. Well, it’s been cancelled over fears that the noise generated by the band will “damage the historic fabric” of the V&A’s various… well, historic fabrics. And, more to the point, the building that contains them.

V&A staff say “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 V&A is committed to an exciting programme of exhibitions and events but the safety of our visitors and building remains our priority at all times”.

Safety first.
