Bloc Party have revealed they had to tell fans that Oasis wouldn't be coming on after them in Paris last Friday. The band split just before they were due to play at the Rock en Seine concert. Bloc Party front man Kele and drummer Matt said they didn't know while they were on stage how serious it was.
I understand you had to break the news to the crowd in Paris that Oasis had split up the day before you played the Leeds Festival? Is that right?
Kele: We were playing our set and my tour manager came up to me and said that Oasis had cancelled and we had to play for longer. And I was like, 'Oh. OK', and we told the audience.
We didn't know that they'd split up. We were just told that they'd cancelled. We were told afterwards.
