@GaryBarlow I was appalled to see plastic confetti littering the Eden project after your last gig there. What on earth was a plastic confetti canon doing thereReport

Apologies to @edenproject for firing our confetti cannons. I hope this doesn’t mean we won’t be asked back? We’ve cancelled all ticker tape at outdoor shows because the reality is, beyond the effect it just turns into litter ?— Gary Barlow (@GaryBarlow) June 11, 2018

Have you seen this @crowmogh? Wonder how long it will be before it’s made it’s way to the sea and we’re picking it up @GaryBarlow. Come on, it’s really not rocket science. #Plastic and #Cornwall are not happy bedfellows ? https://t.co/gXuXaMSKpU— Miss Price (@HeyMissPrice) June 11, 2018

Some fans refused to let the row take the shine off the gig.They responded to the star's apology by downplaying the environmental impact, saying they enjoyed collecting the ticker tape.Samantha Simmons said on Twitter: "Ticker tape is a lovely memory of the concert for fans!" and posted a picture of a memory frame she made from the concert.
