US viewers fume as Coronation Concert cuts out midway through final performance

Viewers of the Coronation Concert in the US were disappointed after the network cut out before the grand show ended.

Royal fans were watching the coronation concert on local PBS networks and it finished showing the event minutes before it ended in the UK.

This meant that viewers missed the grand finale by the British pop band Take That.

Fans flocked to social media to share their outrage and fumed at PBS for "ruining their afternoon".

One person tweeted: "You are so rude PBS. I was dancing around my apartment to Shine. #CoronationConcert. "


While a third penned: "PBS cut off the #CoronationConcert before it ended! WHY?!!! Where can I find it in the US?"

And a fourth person wrote: "Dude my local PBS station just cut off the coronation concert it wasn't even over yet like what?"

While a fifth said: "why did you cut the coronation concert transmission??????"

The star-studded performance took place on Sunday May 7 and plenty of stars took to the stage to perform.

The King and Queen and other members of the royal family joined around 20,000 members of the public at the concert to continue the celebrations after their crowning at Westminster Abbey on Saturday.

The concert itself was hosted by Downton Abbey and Paddington star Hugh Bonneville.

The show saw performances by Take That, Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, DJ Pete Tong, Paloma Faith, Olly Murs, veteran rock guitarist Steve Winwood, and Nicole Scherzinger.

Presenter Zoe Ball was supposed to be presenting the show for BBC Radio 2but was forced to pull out at the last minute due to illness.

On Sunday morning, Ball tweeted: “Absolutely gutted… the sickness bug has got me. Was meant to be heading to Windsor Castle for the #coronationconcert on @BBCRadio2 later.

“@radioleary and @scott_mills have got you covered. I’m heading back to bed.”
