A heavily-promoted February 8 Down show at Civic Theatre in the band's hometown of New Orleans, Louisiana has been cancelled as a result of the controversy surrounding frontman Phil Anselmo. Organizers have issued this statement:
"After recent actions by Phil Anselmo during the Dimebash event this past week, we have cancelled Down's performance at the Civic. We do not tolerate intolerant behavior, and there is no room for that in our venue or our city. Refunds are available at point of purchase. In addition to offering full refunds for all ticket purchases, the Civic has made a donation to the Jewish Federation of New Orleans, pledging our support for a united community."
