Napalm Death: Collapsing old buildings

Napalm Death were going to play the Victoria & Albert Museum, through a ceramic soundsystem which was designed to decay as the set progressed. They've had to pull it, though, as the museum was afraid it could destroy the building as well:

A spokesperson for the museum told Sky News: "This was due to take place in the Europe Galleries, which are currently being refurbished, and a further safety inspection has revealed concerns that the high level of decibels generated by the concert would damage the historic fabric of the building...The V&A is committed to an exciting programme of exhibitions and events but the safety of our visitors and building remains our priority at all times."
It's believed that Extreme Noise Terror at the Cumberland Pencil Museum is in doubt for the same reasons.
