In a stunning last-minute move, Walt Disney Properties have pressured promoter Live Nation into canceling Machine Head's performance tomorrow night at the House of Blues venue in Anaheim (on their Disneyland property). Citing violent imagery, undesirable fans and inflammatory lyrics as the reason, the diversity-impaired corporation began pressuring the promoter on Saturday to cancel all upcoming heavy metal concerts, placing Machine Head under an internal "review process" that took 5 days before bothering to convey their alarming decision to the band late yesterday - less than 48 hours before their Black Tyranny Tour was to kick off at House of Blues Anaheim on Friday night.

While the enactment of this new blanket rule applies to all upcoming heavy metal shows at the House Of Blues Anaheim (with some metal bands having been banned from performing on name alone), Machine Head is the first band to actually have tickets go on sale, and remain on sale for 2 months, before intense pressure and vague threats of liability from the Corporation left the promoter with no choice but to remove the show from the venue.

As a result, Live Nation's Paul McGuigan did the honorable thing and incredibly, on one days notice, managed to salvage the tour's opening night by moving the first date of The Black Tyranny tour (featuring Machine Head, Arch Enemy, Throwdown, and Sanctity) to The Glass House in Pomona, CA (located at 200 W. Second Street). All existing tickets will be redeemable for entry at The Glass House, and all Will Call pickups will now be available for pickup at the new venue. Any fans unable to make the 70-mile trip to The Glass House as a result of this ridiculous turn of events will be able to have their money refunded in full. Strangely, all other Black Tyranny dates at House Of Blues venues on Disney property will remain unaffected.

On behalf of all four bands on the bill, Machine Head wish to extend their gratitude to promoter Paul McGuigan and Live Nation for finding an alternate venue for tomorrow night's show on such short notice.

Corporate censorship sucks big time ass. I don't see how metal fans are 'undesirable' anyway; all the metal fans I know are much better people than the rap fans that give me, my brother and my girlfriend a hard time at ever opportunity.

Wait a minute, they banned one band out of a 2 band tour? So what, Arch Enemy will play House of Blues and Machine Head will play at the other location?

Either way, props to the promoter dude. Most people would just bail out on it.

I think the article says it's a blanket ban on all metal at that particular venue...

Walt Disney is FAR more metal then Machine Head and Arch Enemy.

edit: Now Disney is going to become like UG arguing if something is real metal or not so they can ban it ... But probably not .


i'm looking forward to being able to post in all the "Why isn't Trivium metal?" threads that Disney lets them play at their venue.

i'm pretty sure Disney just called me "undesirable".

Phew I got scared for a second, I thought all HOB shows for Black Tyranny were gonna be cancelled. I would have murdered something. That promoter sounds like a pretty righteous guy, most people in his position probably would have screwed everyone over.

Well, nothing you can really do about it I guess, if Disney doesn't want em to play their venue then they aren't, but I don't know why they would even let them schedule it if they were gonna cancel it at the last minute.

Its yet another uninformed body trying to blanket ban **** that they have no clue about. Censoring metal just because it might attract some unsavoury people. Well ****ing rap concerts bring out the nuts with the 9mm, why not ban them?

Cheers to Walt Disney for having some balls. I can't wait till some Willi Nelson fan pulls out a joint and all country music is banned for rowdy fans. Or when Hannah Montanna comes through and something goes wrong back stage and shes caught lip singing to a back track and an outraged fan says **** YOU! and all pop is banned for horrible fans. Then we'll really have an appropriate house of blues.

Walt Disney hates Jews.

I'm sure if he were still alive, there'd be a little wiggle room allowed for metal bands.

Disney has always been retarded. Have you heard of Celebration Town? It's a whole ****ing town created by Disney to emulate the "good ol' days" of suburban America - aka the days when black people were forced to sit on the back of buses and couldn't use the same washroom as a white man.

Disney also has god knows how many pedophiles working in their theme parks, not to mention exploits workers in developing nations to make their overpriced merchandise.

The House of Blues isn't just one venue, there are tonnes dotted all around America/Canada, maybe other places.. So I think it means the HOB's in other places around the world will continue to allow metal.


Yes, because America and Canada are "the world".

F*ck Disney...what a bunch of bullsh*t. I'm glad the promotor stepped up though and found a new venue.

Now this means that the Suffocation/Immolation tour is also canceled due to those fags at Disney.

That is absolute bollocks, it's like a reapeat of Tipper Gore and her PMRC. "Undesireable fans" what does that mean, there have been thousands of studies showing metal fans as brighter, more cultured and more knowledgable than any other genre amongst teenagers. They seem to look no further than Angela's growling, Robb Flynn's swearing and the fans' long hair and devil horns.

We need to organise an attack on the nearest Disney resort to each of us. Not so much burn it down, but make it shut down - using the superior intelligence that we metal fans embody.

I'm going to Paris to **** Eurodisney up.

yea man, who ever doesnt like pantera or think they suck doesnt like metal, end of discussion, they changed the freakin world n made history, so don't be sayin they suck, have respect, same goes for machine head n lamb of god cuz their good too

disney are just scared that their place will get trashed if they allow metal fans in. they're risking even more now as most fans are now pretty pissed off. if they had let the show go ahead as planned there would have been no fuss but now they've created trouble for themselves.
