British rockers The Vaccines prefer playing gigs in small venues as it helps to hide their onstage blunders.

The Post Break-Up Sex hitmakers have a series of big arena dates ahead of them as they prepare to embark upon a U.K. tour this month (Nov12) but they are adamant larger stadiums can magnify any errors in their performance.

The band's frontman Justin Young tells Britain's Daily Star, "It's easier to make mistakes in small venues - you can just cover it up with a jump. Your mistakes are magnified on big stages."
