Doncaster apologises as music concert is called off at last minute
Doncaster has issued an apology to racegoers after Saturday night's post-racing music concert by Rudimental was cancelled at the last minute.
The gig had been scheduled to take place following the last race at 8.55 but not long after the action on the track had finished, the course released a statement on social media informing customers that the Brit Award-winning drum and bass band had called in sick.
It read: "Unfortunately due to illness we have been informed in the last hour that Rudimental cannot perform this evening.
"There will be a full DJ set with full production and light show after racing. Doncaster Racecourse management is sorry for this unforeseen circumstance.
"We request that ticket holders retain their tickets from today's race day. We appreciate customers will have questions and a statement regarding Rudimental will be made early next week as we explore options for rescheduling and options regarding tickets.
"The racecourse team continue to work to deliver this evening's race meeting and we will address any queries from Monday. We can only apologise for the change."
A message was posted on Rudimental's Twitter account, which read: "Doncaster: We are very sorry but we cannot make the show tonight. We have sorted a great replacement act and will come back soon. Apologies!"
Rudimental had been a late replacement themselves, having stepped in for Mark Ronson, who announced eight days ago he was pulling out.
