The crew of Feeder’s current UK tour escaped unharmed this weekend when their bus caught fire on the M62 while travelling between Glasgow and Lincoln. The band who had played a sold out show at Glasgow Barrowlands the previous evening were travelling in a separate vehicle.
At 5:30am on Saturday 25th October the driver of the crew bus saw flames and smoke coming from the back of the tour bus. The driver immediately pulled onto the hard shoulder and woke the 13 sleeping crew members to evacuate them.
Minutes after everyone was safely away from the vehicle, the fire took hold and the bus was completely destroyed. As well as tour equipment and merchandise, the 13 men and women on board lost their personal belongings. JD Sports in Lincoln kindly dressed the crew the following day!
