After being criticised over the move, he replied: "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 to litter."Another fan came to Barlow's defence.Samantha Simmons wrote: "Ticker tape is a lovely memory of the concert for fans!"
Most of it prob got collected by your fans! There will be 'ell up' if you don't get asked back! Ticker tape is a lovely memory of the concert for fans! This is what I did with what we collected for Zach's memory frame! pic.twitter.com/1RNzJLcvkl— Samantha Simmons (@tattybear85) June 11, 2018
