Slaves at O2 Ritz, Manchester
***THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED***
Tickets redeemable upon the new date which is set to be 15th January 2016.
A statement from a member of the band explaining why the show has had to be cancelled:
“Hello everybody. As some of you may know I dislocated my shoulder whilst performing the other night. I went to hospital and they put it back in for me but I am now in a sling and do not have much mobility in my arm. The doctor said I can't drum for the next few weeks or there is a good chance it will come out again and cause some serious long term damage. Therefore we are going to have to pull out of the remaining shows of our November UK tour and they will be rescheduled to the dates below in January. All your tickets will still be valid and we will all have a very nice time together, just not yet. I'm very sorry. Totally gutted but I guess shit happens doesn't it. Love to you all. Isaac xxx”

Kentish duo Slaves have had a whirlwind of a year, having already been nominated for the BBC Music Sound Of 2015 as well as the Best New Band at the NME Awards back in February.
Taking influence from a number of British punk behemoths including Crass, Refuse and UK Subs, Slaves have been known to perform energetic, in your face shows with politically prudent themes, leading them to gain a hefty reputation that has been carved out during the recent months spent touring the UK, which has led a further string of dates to be added at the end of the year.
Slaves debut single Where’s Your Car Debbie? And their first EP Sugar Coated Bitter Truth were both released to critical acclaim, which was followed with a number of other singles released on Virgin EMI. As well as their award nominations, Slaves went on to perform alongside U2, Sam Smith on Later Live with Jools Holland, before announcing last year that the duo will be releasing their debut album Are You Satisfied? On the 6th of June.
Although Slaves have already finished a large number of shows over the past few months, they have released a number of other dates that will be taking place throughout the summer and autumn. The boys will be appearing at number of festivals with a stand up drum kit now featuring in their shows, with Leeds and Reading, T In The Park, Ibiza Rocks, Common People and Radio 1s Big Weekend being some of the highlights. After the festival season is over Slaves will be going on to play in Bristol, Cardiff, Glasgow, Manchester, Leeds and Manchester, where they will play at 02 Ritz on the 21st of November.
