Irish Sea weather conditions have obliged Bastille to cancel their sold-out Olympia Concert in Dublin tonight, Sunday January 27.

Ticket holders are advised to hold onto their tickets while the band, venue and promoters work to reschedule the date as soon as possible with a further announcement later this week.

"We’re gutted that our gig in Dublin tonight has had to be postponed, " the band declared in a statement. 

"We’ve been trying everything possible in the last 24 hours to get the tour trucks and buses to Ireland, but the bad weather has meant all ferries have been cancelled and none of our gear will be able to make it in time.

"Huge apologies to everyone with tickets and anyone who’s travelled."
