Philip Anselmo & The Illegals shows canceled over 2016 incident
Two Philip Anselmo & The Illegals concerts scheduled to take place in New Zealand this month have apparently been canceled. According to stuff, the cancelations stem from Anselmo's 2016 "white power" incident, which is particularly problematic in the wake of Friday's mosque terror attacks in the New Zealand city of Christchurch. The shows were to take place on March 26 in Christchurch and March 27 in Auckland. The Auckland venue, Galatos, issued the following statement earlier today:
"Galatos will NOT be hosting this show in our venue on the above date. Just today, information has come to hand which has made us uncomfortable about proceeding with this show."
