Bombay Bicycle Club in backstage spat with Lily Allen’s dancers

British rockers Bombay Bicycle Club became embroiled in an awkward showdown with Lily Allen’s backing dancers at a music festival in Scotland on Saturday (24May14) when the troupe seized the band’s dressing room. The group, which was performing at BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Glasgow, was left shut out of their own backstage space when Allen’s dancers locked themselves inside to practice their routines.
Frontman Jack Steadman tells Britain’s Daily Telegraph newspaper, “We were awkwardly standing outside our dressing room trying to get in because it was locked and Lily Allen’s dancers were in there. They almost hit us. It was that kind of awkward moment where we were just the weird people getting in the way.”
The festival line-up also included One Direction, Katy Perry and Coldplay.
