Disney cancels Machine Head shows.

http://machinehead1.com/board_posts...ellation?page=1

Quote:
For the third time in a row, the corporate powers behind Walt Disney Properties have once again pressured promoter Live Nation into canceling Machine Head's performance at a House of Blues venue on Disney property, this time the December 4th show in Orlando, FL.

While no one is willing to provide evidence that would prove unfavorable to Disney, sources close to events have suggested that Machine Head remains on a "banned list", and while Dethklok, All That Remains and Black Dahlia Murder will still be allowed to play, the corporate powers at Disney have refused to allow Machine Head to perform.

In 2007, Walt Disney Properties banned Machine Head from the House Of Blues venues in both Anaheim and Orlando, citing "violent imagery", "inflammatory lyrics" and most appallingly "undesirable fans" as the reason. The diversity-impaired corporation began pressuring the promoter with vague threats of liability and reduced job security before placing Machine Head under an internal "review process". Five days later, Walt Disney Properties would convey their alarming decision to the band, less than 48 hours before the first date of 2007's anti-war, anti-religion, anti-conservative-themed "The Blackening" album headline run at the House Of Blues in Anaheim, CA.

A stunned Machine Head announced the details and disgust regarding the situation and let fans know of the then-rescheduled show 70 miles away at The Glass House in Pomona. In retaliation for that public announcement, Disney cancelled the band's then-upcoming performance at the House Of Blues in Orlando, citing the same absurd reasons, though they would only publicly state that they had "changed musical formats" at the venue.

Machine Head wish to once again extend their gratitude to Live Nation and the House Of Blues for their poise and tolerance throughout these ridiculous developments, unbelievably transpiring here in these United States Of America in this year 2012.

As they are not on Disney property and therefore not subject to the corporation's alleged coercionary tactics, the current dates with Dethklok, All That Remains and The Black Dahlia Murder at the Dallas and Houston House Of Blues will go on as scheduled. Unfortunately, Machine Head’s Florida performance will not be rescheduled in an effort to avoid creating any conflict with the existing dates on the tour.


Thoughts on this?

Disney will kill metal.

It's gonna take a lot more than that to make up for Star Wars 7, Disney! But you're on the right track.

Not wanting Machine Head fans on your property seems like a really good reason to ban Machine Head from playing on your property.

This almost feels like a typical Disney sequel where the exact same thing happens again

Because Dethklok, All That Remains and Black Dahlia Murder have far better fans.

Any way you cut it, it isn't fair.

Somebody should open a venue to oppose Disney's House of Blues venues and call it House of Jews.

Mickey Mouse is racist towards live people and biased towards animated characters.

Article was a bit confusing, but it appears you're right.

Ah well. Yeah, it's gonna rustle some peoples' jimmies but the truth is it's their land and they can do whatever the hell they want with it. I've been to that House of Blues, it's not far at all from the actual theme parks. Since the theme parks are family themed, Disney doesn't want something very family unfriendly possibly interacting with small children. Fair enough.

Hmm. Maybe Walt only hated jews who weren't as stereotypical as their animated counterparts?
