"Fantastic venue, and great staff as always, just let down by a singer who couldn't seem to give a sh*t."

This comes after Tuesday's sold-out concert at The Diamond Live Lounge in Wood Street, when Wes slurred his way through songs as he swigged a bottle of spirits on stage and boasted to fans about being high on crack cocaine.

The singer, who has been arrested numerous times during a turbulent career, was booed and sworn at by angry fans at the Wood Street venue as the sold-out gig descended into farce.

Despite claims Wes is not 'fit' enough to continue with the tour, the band are set to play in Edinburgh tonight, before continuing on to Plymouth tomorrow and London on Sunday.
