Yhdysvaltalainen rock-yhtye Black Beil Brides joutui peruuttamaan konserttinsa Kanadan Vancouverissa, koska yhtyettä ei päästetty sisälle maahan. Yhtye kommentoi asiaa virallisessa tiedotteessaan:
“This morning we arrived at the Canadian border in order to gain access to a country that we have not only played countless shows in but also recorded an album and spent a great deal of time in over the years. Instead, several members of our tour were denied entry, berated and treated with utter contempt by the agents on duty.
We have been touring internationally for a decade and have never experienced such a lack of civility at any border crossing or passport control in any country we have ever visited. We have a fantastic relationship with our Canadian fans and it’s with a very heavy heart that we must share that tonight’s show in Vancouver will be cancelled.
Asking Alexandria will continue on and still perform tonight as scheduled. We encourage everyone to still go to the show and have a great time.
Refunds can be obtained at the point of purchase, thank you for your understanding and we promise to return again as soon as possible.”
