Down show in New Orleans cancelled over Phil Anselmo

Thursday, February 4, 2016 12:04 PM PT / 6,730 views
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."

I care deeply about what he said, because Hitler is still alive and the Great War still rages. Women belong in the kitchen, blah blew bloo blah, oil, 9/11. Shut up everyone


genghisjohn 2/4/2016 9:47:17 PM

Donate to the "Jews Bitch About Everything, Especially the Guilt of Being Jew, So Jew Those Who Aren't Jew into Jewing What Jew They Might Have Left. Jews" fund. Because being Jew is the penultimate to being American.

Phill is just showing how tall the grass is in Germany is and getting a head start on white history month in March. When did they have Jews in NO? Lol get it no they have their own country go back. Nazi Jew's control Israel's government and NASA was created by Nazis. Hitler Died in Argentina a couple years ago and the FBI coverd up his death in the history books to make up believe he died in 1945. fck out of here. O yeah I fcked your mom smoking weed kills cancer cells.

oh how delightful, making donations to a Jewish charity. maybe the money will go to Israel where they can buy more weapons to oppress the Palestinians


anonymous 2/5/2016 5:48:53 AM

OHHHHHH well just let me throw on my Jew helmet and squeeze down into the Jew cannon and FIRE OFF INTO JEW LAND! WHERE JEWS GROW ON JEWBIES!

A Down show should not be cancelled because of Phil being a fat racist with a Nazi boner, a Down show should be cancelled because Down is absolute garbage and only tolerable by people who have a favorable opinion about marrying your cousin.


anonymous 2/5/2016 8:50:48 AM

So technically Phil Anselmo donated money to the Jewish community. If he never completed his actions at Dimebash, this promoter never would have donated. So with Phil's donation, he should be forgiven and this matter put behind us.

They stripped me naked had me lift my ballsack up so they could check underneath it, and then had me bend over and spread my asscheeks apart so they could look inside my jerk.


anonymous 2/6/2016 4:29:13 AM

So you are telling me the Jews extorted money from the civic theater. Extortion is s new trend it heavy music.


anonymous 2/6/2016 5:53:23 AM

That right... Give money to the Jews while 3% of the population commits 52% of the murders in the US. MAKES SOOOO SENSE. What a travesty. Fûck this shît. And people wonder why there are mass shootings. 88

We do not tolerate the intolerant Down. Even if the members all have Down syndrome.


anonymous 2/7/2016 5:47:03 AM

What's hilarious about this cancellation is Phil arrogantly thought the venue would have Down without him.


anonymous 2/11/2016 9:58:55 PM

Yeah giving the Jewish community a Band-Aid for this is rather ridiculous. The Jewish community is fine, but to have Down play the show would actually be pretty irresponsible, given what their addict / alcoholic lead singer just said and did onstage under the influence. In a city as culturally and racially diverse as New Orleans is, it simply wouldn't make sense to allow them to play at this time, and maybe never.
