BARCELONA, Spain, June 3 (UPI) -- Icelandic pop star Bjork canceled her appearance at Spain's Primavera Sound music festival, allowing revived British trio Saint Etienne to take the stage.

The 1990s London-based trio was able to fill the gap left by Bjork's cancellation Saturday due to inflamed vocal chords, thinkSpain reported.

The band, formed by Sarah Cracknell, Peter Wiggs and Bob Stanley, was well-received by the 38,000 concert-goers at Parc del Forum in Barcelona despite the change in lineup, thinkSpain said. Saint Etienne performed songs from its 20-year-old hit record "You're in a Bad Way," as well as newer numbers like "Sylvie" and "Tonight."

About 150,000 spectators are expected for Sunday's final concerts by Arc de Triomf and Barcelona, thinkSpain said.
