British indie rockers Maximo Park have been forced to cancel their upcoming appearance at the Royal Albert Hall on March 30th because their guitarist Duncan Lloyd broke his arm.

Following a big night out at the NME Awards the band announced on their website: “Dunc broke his right arm. We hope he gets better soon, obviously, but it looks like we won’t be playing at the Albert Hall, since he is the guitar player! More news will follow, but at least we won’t have to cancel a whole tour. Small Mercies.”

Maximo Park have since confirmed after an operation on Lloyd’s arm that they will be unable to play the March 30 show, and are offering refunds to all who purchased tickets via SeeTickets. The performance was intended to raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust and feature not only Maximo Park but co-headliners Razorlight. The tough search for a replacement band begun immediately following Lloyd’s injury, but the Teenage Cancer Trust are no doubt going to have some trouble finding a band at such short notice.
