Here is the official statement from the promotor regarding the overselling of the show this evening in the Isle of Wight:

The Ventnor Winter Gardens and Rock and Roll Enterprises would like to sincerely apologise for the refunding of a number purchased UB40 tickets for tonight’s concert.
This is due to the promoter and the venue over selling the concert above the safe capacity of the venue as stipulated by the health and safety officer.
This decision has been made purely for safety reasons and in no way reflects adversely on UB40 or their management.
We very much regret any disappointment and inconvenience caused to the affected tickets holders, whose tickets will be fully refunded.
Thank you

Maybe the promoter should have booked a larger venue if this was the case!!!!

Like the ice arena??

Very sad for all concerned, but safety is paramount. Can just imagine the furore if everyone had been let through the doors regardless of maximum numbers.
