S Club fans were left fuming after they were forced to vacate the much-anticipated postponed gig at the M&S Bank Arena in Liverpool on Monday.
At 9 p.m., a fire alarm siren sounded again, leaving the arena in complete darkness while the band performed their song “Alive.”
At the beginning of the month, the group had to cancel their planned performance because another fire was suspected at the venue a few hours before the concert began.
The band – Tina Barrett, Jon Lee, Bradley McIntosh, Jo O’Meara and Rachel Stevens – left fans devastated when their concert was canceled.
Fans rushed to Twitter, formerly known as X, to vent their frustration.
