Watch: Promoter throws Finley Quaye off after just 30 mins into gig 'I don't want to pollute my venu

Life is essentially a sequence of screw-ups - large and small - that may distort and depress you, but you have to adjust and put up with them. Well, for this Music Promoter, booking Finley Quaye was just one step too far.

The Brit and MOBO award-winning artist was playing a show at the Convent Club in Woodchester, Gloucestershire for 30 minutes before the whole thing was called quits by Promoter Matt Roberts.

"I am so sorry guys, I have worked in the industry 28 years, I have a reputation," Roberts told the crowd as he interrupted the set.

"You guys, go home," he then told Quaye's band. "We will refund the tickets, and I can only say that I am so sorry because the music industry and live music is beautiful.

"I am sorry, I will not sit here and pollute my venue with bullshit, and I can only apologise for you who were getting some of it because there is some magic there.

"All I can say is this is my house and I have acted how I feel is appropriate."

It was later revealed by Roberts that Quaye had failed to attend his soundcheck earlier that day.
