It's usually the latter. In this case it definitely is, because Soilwork were added to the London show first, before the support for the tour was sorted. For some reason London promoters are really bad at this.
If I had to guess, seeing as Soilwork are on their own tour anyway, tonight was the only night they could do London, and there were no suitable venues available for them to do their own show. Thing is, you just know it's going to lead to a short Overkill set.
