Scottish band The View stopped a set after the singer attacked the bass player on stage, punching him and kicking him. “It was horrifying to see someone you respect behave like this,” a concert attendee told the BBC. The group released a statement.

The incident happened during The View’s concert at The Deaf Institute in Manchester on Wednesday. The lead singer of Scottish indie-rock band Kyle Falconer landed a series of punches and kicked bassist Kieren Webster. Two other people present on the stage intervened and the concert was stopped. Recordings of the incident were posted on social media.

Falconer returned to the stage after the break and played the last song himself, telling the audience: “Excuse me Kieren, if you want you can come and finish the show,” ITV News reported on Thursday. The day after the Manchester gig, the band posted a statement on social media saying they “have to postpone tonight’s show in London”. “Our organizer is working to resolve this situation. Keep your tickets and we will announce further information in a few days. Huge apologies to all our fans,” the statement read.

A fan about a “scary” situation

The BBC reached out to a fan of the band, Sffie Yates, who had been waiting six years to see the band. The woman admitted that she initially considered the incident “some kind of show off”. “It was scary to see someone you respect behave like this,” she told the public broadcaster. As she added, the band “walked off the stage, and the fans were milling around under her, waiting to see what would happen.”

Formed in 2005, The View is best known for the song “Same Jeans”, which reached number three in the UK charts in 2007, and the album “Hats Off to the Buskers”, which went platinum. The group broke up in 2017, resuming activity five years later. In August 2023, her musicians announced the premiere of a new album.
