After bandmates argue onstage, The View abandons gig.

The Dundee band was scheduled to perform in London on Thursday night, but the show was postponed following an onstage altercation during their Manchester performance.

After bandmates argue onstage, The View abandons gig.

Fans of the Scottish indie rock band posted online footage of vocalist Kyle Falconer, 35, throwing his guitar to the ground after bassist Kieren Weber, 37, appears to kick his microphone stand.

Then, Falconer connects multiple punches and a kick.

Before concluding his performance, the singer apologized to the audience for being left alone onstage.

He stated, “The problem with this band is that he wants to sing the songs but he can’t.”

Greater Manchester Police stated that no officers were dispatched to the scene.

The ensemble was scheduled to perform Thursday night at the Oslo in Hackney, London, but the concert was postponed.

In an online statement, a representative said, “Unfortunately, we must postpone tonight’s London performance. Our promoter is attempting to resolve the issue.

Please hold on to your tickets for the time being, and we will announce in a few days. Massive apologies to all our supporters.”

Same Jeans, which peaked at No. 3 on the UK Singles Chart in 2007, is The View’s most well-known song.

Since announcing a hiatus in 2017, the ensemble has performed several comeback shows. Their new album, Exorcism Of Youth, will be released in August of this year.

This summer, they are scheduled to perform at Neighbourhood Weekender in Warrington on May 27 and at several other venues, including TRNSMT in Glasgow.
