Siouxsie And The Banshees Aberdeen, Scotland
On Friday in Aberdeen, the show went ahead with first a local band and then The Cure playing an extended set - while Siouxsie and the tour crew tried to locate Kenny and John, who had failed to turn up at the theatre. Eventually in their hotel rooms, their pillows were found propped up dummy-like in bed, with their backstage passes attached - and eye-witnesses reported seeing the pair taxi-bound for the railway station.
An irate Siouxsie then went on stage to tell an angry crowd that the two had quit without warning, though she pacified them to some extent by singing ‘The Lords Prayer’ with remaining Banshee, bassist Steve Severin - and by insisting that ticket money should be refunded in full.
