Lorna Shore recently fired vocalist CJ McCreery following numerous allegations of sexual abuse and misconduct and they’ve now cancelled a string of tour dates in Asia.
The band made a post on Facebook earlier today (January 1) to announce they have to cancel after failing to work something out with booking agents.
On December 23, the band posted a message saying “Effective immediately, CJ McCreery is no longer the vocalist of Lorna Shore.”
It became apparent from a series of tweets that sexual abuse allegations against CJ McCreery dating back months were related to his firing.
Later, one of the main women involved in outing McCreery for his abuse confirmed her messages were not the direct reason he was fired.
Today, the band posted a message announcing their Asia tour dates were off.
We are deeply saddened to announce that we will NOT be playing the shows we had scheduled there this month. Ourselves, and the booking agent tried everything we could to make this happen, but unfortunately it just couldn’t work.
We promise to be back soon. We love you all and are very sorry we couldn’t make this happen.”
They updated the post shortly after telling fans they will get an update on the status of the band and their album which was due soon as soon as they can comment on the situation.
“Edit: everyone asking about the album/future. you will know when we know. at this moment, there are discussions but nothing we can comment on.
all we ask is please be patient.
this will all be addressed soon.”
