Lamb Of God Banned In Los Angeles Forum Once Again, Replaced On Metallica tour by Machine Head
Band Photo: Lamb of God (?)
Lamb Of God has been replaced my Machine Head on the Los Angeles dates of the Metallica tour. Here's the announcement from Metallica:
"As you may have heard, the owners of the Los Angeles Forum have a little issue with our friends from Lamb of God, so unfortunately they will not be joining us for the two shows at the Forum on December 17 and 18. That's the bad news... the good news is that our bros in Machine Head are rushing back to the States from Europe to step in on those two nights. And of course no show would be complete without The Sword kicking things off, so they'll be there too."
Lamb of God was previously banned from performing at the church-owned (then-named) Great Western Forum in April of 2005 on the Subliminal Verses tour with Slipknot because church leaders were offended by the group's previous name, Burn the Priest.
In a statement on the band's Web site, drummer Chris Adler called the church's decision back in 2005 "a bit ridiculous."
"If they had taken the time to look into what we do and who we are as a band, I don't think they would have made the same decision," he told The Associated Press in 2005.
"They have made it clear that they do not want us because of our name, our show and our crowd," Adler said. "The word from the powers that be is that Lamb of God is not the wholesome family fun that the good people of Los Angeles deserve."
