Letlive. were recently barred from playing the April 3 date of their tour supporting Taking Back Sunday. According to a post on the band’s Facebook page, Disney/House Of Blues Orlando (which is located in Downtown Disney) notified the group that they had been “pulled from the event.”
“We cannot offer any details as to why since we were given none ourselves,” the band said. They are currently trying to set up a one-off headlining show at another venue in the area.
You can read ll.’s full statement below. This isn’t the band’s first conflict with a venue: Last year, their set was reportedly cut short after singer Jason Butler climbed a balcony at a theater in Georgia. (It was a killer performance, by the way.)
Ladies and Gentlemen that were planning on attending the Lake Buena Vista, Florida date at the House Of Blues on the upcoming tour with Taking Back Sunday and The Menzingers and expecting to see ll.- due to reasons we cannot control, we will not be permitted to play said date. We have just been notified by the people at Disney Orlando/HOB that we have been pulled from the event. We cannot offer any details as to why since we were given none ourselves. Rumor has it that Goofy, Pluto, and most of Toontown were in protest against the decision, but Chairman Mouse exercised veto powers and struck down the proposition in the end. In the meantime, we will be trying to set up a one off at another venue in place of the this. Thank you so much for the unwavering support. It's moments like these we deeply appreciate it/you.
