Waves wash out Wave 105 Kaiser Chiefs show

High tides and strong waves caused a Wave 105 concert on the beach in Bournemouth to be cancelled over the weekend.

Headline act the Kaiser Chiefs had to be called off due to public safety after exceptionally high water levels damaged the beach stage areas during the Friday night “Hits on the Beach” event.

A second event on Saturday evening, “Sunset on the beach” was also cancelled. They were both part of the Bournemouth Air Show, which also suffered from a combination of exceptional wind and sea conditions resulting in air shows being called off or postponed.

Travis, Calum Scott, Imani Williams & Kiko Bun managed to perform before the weather turned.

Organisers of the Air Show said: “Unfortunately a combination of exceptional wind and sea conditions, that could not be fully anticipated have resulted in the cancellation of tonight’s final part of the show. This was caused by direct southerly/south westerly winds and short period strong waves which added to the forecast high spring tide. This created high levels of water on the beach that had been unprecedented in all the years of staging the event. This decision was taken in the interest of public safety and the organisers are grateful for the corporation and understanding of everyone involved.”

Wave 105 posted a video of the Kaiser Chiefs apologising for not performing but saying they will be back in the area soon.
