Acoustical fears force cancellation of heavy metal concert at museum

Fear that the sonic effects of live heavy metal music* would destroy exhibits and perhaps part of the building led the Victoria and Albert Museum, in London, to cancel a scheduled performance by the musical group Napalm Death. The concert was scheduled to happen this Friday night, but now is not.

Details are in The Times, in a report headlined “Heavy metal brings house down at V&A“.
