W.A.S.P. Cancel Two More Shows
W.A.S.P. have cancelled two more shows on their North American tour. The first cancelled date was their August 10 show at Barrymore’s Music Hall in Ottawa, Ontario. According to a posting on W.A.S.P.'s official fan forum, no official reason has been given for the cancellation, but according to the bar owners it had to do with "the barriers in front of the stage." The tour manager reportedly claimed the barriers weren't sufficient enough to insure the band's safety and thus decided W.A.S.P. would not play.
The second cancelled date is the August 11 show at Club Infinity in Buffalo (Clarence), New York. Another posting on the band's official forum regarding the cancellation reads:
Since I was going to be driving 2 1/2 hours to see WASP, I figured that (in light of the recent cancellations) calling ahead to make sure it was still on was a good idea. They informed me that the opening bands were still going to play, but "WASP's singer is on the way to the hospital for food poisoning. He said that they are going to try to play if they can, but we won't know until after the openers go on." So I figure I'll take the gamble and run out there anyways...as I get done filling up my gas tank (this is prolly an hour after I made my original phone call) I get a hunch and call the venue again...this time they informed me that WASP has cancelled and again that Blackie was on his way to the hospital, only instead of just food poisoning the girl tells me that "...an ulcer...um...a stomach virus...err...food poisoning...something is wrong with his stomach.
