Some fans were disappointed in the change of show.

One user commented: “I’m gutted it’s not Garbage!”

Another agreed: “How can we have a refund ?”

A third: “Can we at least get an adequate justification for a one month warning about this? I had my plane ticket booked and holidays on purpose for this concert.”

However, some fans were pleased with the new additions.

One user said: “I already had Leeds tickets and was taking my son to his first ever concert (aged 8) and my 15 year old daughter but we all love Johnny Marr too so this has made our day.”

A second agreed: “Even more hyped now.”

A third commented: “WOOO, see you in Glasgow!”
