Potential roof loss

This is a photo of the roof of the Motorpoint arena in Cardiff. As you can see maintenance work is underway in preparation for the Kasabian gig this evening. Such a lovely roof. Will be sad to see it go

They’re really gonna need to get a Sarcophagus over that thing after they’re done.

I must have caught them on an off night. Definitely in my top ten most boring bands I’ve ever seen. (This was at the ICA, supporting the Von Bondies, in 2002 or thereabouts.)

I take it the Von Bondies wanted to play an open air concert, which is why they got Kasabian to support?

Looks like the roof stayed on but reports coming in that they “smashed it” not sure if that refers to the venue or the general area.
