Report of a last minute cancellation by Procul Harem due with a very suspect apology from their agency blaming it on a bout of flu. It was becoming more common for large bands to cancel shows if a more attractive proposition was presented and Procal Harem were known as the main offenders of this shitty practice.

Taken from the Manchester Independent Newspaper, written and edited by University of Manchester students. With thanks to James Peters at the University of Manchester Archives and Ben Ward at The University of Manchester Students' Union.
