Asher D: facing jail for having a gun
It's another blow to the band who already had to cancel their entire UK tour because of fears of violence after a shooting outside a club in November 2001.

Hampshire Police have welcomed the cancellation.

They said: "We are please to learn this band will not appear. The well-documented problems associated with the band and some of its followers...raised the issue of public safety."

Meanwhile, crew member Asher D could be facing prison after admitting possessing a gun. He's due to be sentenced on 25 March.
