Bus Fire Forces Kings Of Leon Postponement

The Kings Of Leon concert scheduled for tonight at The O2 in London was postponed after a fire broke out on one or more of the band’s tour buses.

There are conflicting reports as to how many buses were damaged in the fire. CNN reports two buses parked near the arena’s loading bay caught on fire, while a message posted on the O2’s website only mentions one bus. The message also states the fire did not cause any damage to the venue.

From the London O2 website:

“Unfortunately, due to this morning’s fire on board one of the tour buses at The O2, tonight’s Kings of Leon concert will now be postponed. Whilst there is no damage to The O2 there is now insufficient time to rig the arena for tonight’s performance. We are sorry for the inconvenience and we will announce a new date shortly.”
