  So Solid gig axed because of violence fears
Updated 19 November 2001, 19.32

Garage sensation So Solid Crew's London gig has been cancelled because of the violence that broke out last time they played in the capital.

Two men were taken to hospital with gunshot injuries at the November concert at the Astoria, although none of the band members were involved.

'Huge disappointment'

The crew say it's a "huge disappointment" and it means they've no London dates in their UK tour which starts on 5 December.

Band member, Oxide said: "It's a shame London's going to miss out - it's our home". But they told fans who'd bought tickets for the 18 December date they were trying to sort out a new venue.

Statement

So Solid Crew were so shocked at the shooting, they put out a statement saying they "abhor violence and have made it clear on their record that they want the violence to stop".

The garage act have had lots of success this year, winning three Mobo awards in October and a number one hit with 21 Seconds.
