Clinic have been forced to cancel their one-off London show at the legendary surroundings of St Martin’s College next week.

The cancellation of the December 14 show comes after a ‘small minority’ of local students complained about the event saying that it would disrupt their studies.

A sit-in stage protest had been organised in response to the show.

The band, together with support acts Archie Bronson Outfit and These New Puritans, have apologised to fans.

Clinic say that all tickets will remain valid for their next London show which will be scheduled alongside their UK tour next year.

Domino Records said in a statement:

‘Clinic’s headlining show at Central St Martin’s College, featuring The Archie Bronson Outfit and These New Puritans has been cancelled. Central St Martin’s college was forced to cancel the event in response to pressure from a small minority of students, who saw the show as a perceived disruption to their studies and were threatening to stage a sit in protest. 
‘Clinic, Archie Bronson Outfit, These New Puritans and Domino are saddened and disappointed that the concert is not taking place but unfortunately it was beyond our control.  Tickets will be honoured at Clinic’s next London show which is due to take place in February or will be fully refundable from point of purchase. Full Details of the replacement London show alongside UK tour details will be announced next week.’

Meanwhile, Clinic will release their next single ‘If You Could Read Your Mind’ on February 5.
