Neck Deep gig cancelled after two songs as violence breaks out between band and security on stage
 Add to favorites

Last night saw a Neck Deep gig pulled after just two songs when violence broke out between members of the band and security. See footage of the incident below.

The band were playing a sold out gig at Rock City in Nottingham, when bouncers attempted to remove members of the audience who were crowdsurfing. When the band noticed, an altercation erupted between them and the show’s security. Fans have since accused security of being overly ‘harsh’.

As the Nottingham Post reports, the band then left the stage and refused to continue performing, while much of the audience remained in the venue and began to shout at security.

Fans then took to Twitter to react to the gig being pulled:

If anyone gets angry at Neck Deep for what happened in Nottingham I will fight them. They were trying to stick up for their fans

“We are currently still fully investigating the incident,” said Rock City owners DHP in a statement. “It appears that the band took exception to the way the Rock City security were handling fans who were crowd surfing into the pit and attempting to get on stage.

“This unfortunately escalated into a physical confrontation between the band and the security staff. Having reviewed the CCTV footage and spoken to witnesses, it doesn’t appear that the security staff were disproportionate in their response to the crowd surfing.”

They continued: “We take the safety of our customers very seriously and constantly review our crowd management policy. Of course, we know how disappointing this has been for the fans who didn’t get to see the band play. We hope to be able to make a further announcement on this shortly.”

NME has approached Neck Deep for a response

Eyewitness Rob Jackson, 51, told the Post:“The security were very harsh and one of the band ran across the stage to help the audience when he saw it happening.

“It was disappointing that they cancelled the show but the band were right, they had to do something.”

Fellow fan, 20-year-old Nottingham Trent student Dan Qunnell added: “It was a total mess. I was in shock, I didn’t know what was going on.

“We all waited there after the band had left until the lights came on and they told us to leave.”
