Gary Barlow blasted over plastic confetti cannon ‘blunder’
GARY BARLOW has said sorry after firing plastic confetti cannons at an open-air arena concert in Cornwall.
The singer, 47, was accused of making an ‘epic environmental blunder’ after the Eden Project site was left littered with plastic ticker tape.
Campaign groups accused the Take That star of undermining efforts to phase out single-use plastics.
Cornwall Against Plastic said: ‘Take That, beautiful world! The gardens were littered after Gary Barlow’s gig. What on earth was he doing using plastic confetti cannons at his gig?
‘Get a grip, Gary, and use your talent in a more responsible manner.’
Barlow, who was performing in front of a sell-out crowd of 6,500, later apologised and vowed he would no longer use ticker tape at outdoor shows. He tweeted: ‘The reality is, beyond the effect it just turns into litter.’ The Eden Project has been approached for comment.
