Mr Fox said: "We got a security notice from the band and certain things are mentioned on it, and garden gnomes are on it.

"Whether it's put on it for us to be sure we have read it, so that it gets mentioned?

"Anything that's like a missile, it's in terms of anything that can be thrown at the act on the stage."
