Lilith Fair Pulls Out Of Arizona Tour Date!

| Filed under: Music MinutePolitik

wenn5006430jb.jpg

So many musicians are speaking out!!

Despite their underwhelming ticket sales, the revived Lilith Fair this summer has cancelled their July 8th performance in Arizona - and many are speculating that it's due to artists protesting the HOrrific new immigration laws!

A few weeks ago, Go-Go's singer Belinda Carlisle wrote this message on her facebook:

"the gogo's are encouraging lilith to move this date to another state in protest of the new immigration law. we are NOT supporting the state government. i don't like mixing business and politics but i'm afraid i have to this time."

Last week, this press release was issued:

"The Lilith Fair date scheduled for July 8 in Phoenix has been cancelled and refunds can be made at point of purchase. At this time, The Go-Go’s have not been informed as to why the show was canceled. We regret the loss of the date on our farewell tour as we know we have many devoted fans in Arizona."

It's so unfortunate that Arizona fans have to suffer the consequences of their government's actions, but we applaud these performers for standing up for what they believe in!

What do U think?? Is Lilith Fair doing the right thing?? Or could there be another reason they pulled out of their Arizona show??

    Why does everyone care about this issue in Arizona where in NYC, you have to carry your ID and present upon the police asking for it. If you don't have it, you get a ticket. HELLOOOOO!!! I guess it doesn't matter if everyone has to deal with it in NYC that includes legal immigrants, naturalized citizens, and home grown Americans of all races. I guess it only matters to stand up for illegal immigrants. Also, this law has been a federal law since the 50's. EVERY state is suppose to comply with it. THIS IS A BIGGER ISSUE THAN ARIZONA. People should stand up against all states having to show ID and remove the Federal law - not just arizona

    Pathetic! Nice that Hollywood has an opinion on the matter when they don’t have to suffer the consequences. The crime and kidnapping statistics alone speaks for itself. Come live in Arizona and listen to the news every night. People being killed, raped, kidnapped. Police officers killed regularly. Let's ship all these people into your backyard so you can deal with it. Oh, and don't forget, you'll have to pay for them and their children too through your taxes. They will make more money than you with their jobs becase they don't pay taxes. See how you feel about it Belinda.

    I just don't understand why all these acts are doing this…I don't know why fans have to be punished because of something that the state politicians are doing??? Do they really think because they aren't playing there the law will be changed… I mean I understand that them not going with have the state or area lose some revenue but…I don't know I am just rambling, I just want to know why fans are being punished for something that they really had no control over…



  4. 4

    so less work for the illegal immigrants that would normally work these shows! good move, pershaps they can all return to Mexico when the jobs dry up!



  5. 5

    more celebrities "taking a stand" against something they know nothing about……..
    *
    unfortunate for the fans??? are you kidding!!?!?!?!! awwww, poor things…..let me get them some tissue to wipe their twat……..
    *
    what's unfortunate is that Arizona's citizens have to deal with the illegals you dumbass liberals think should be allowed to live in the United States of America without repercussions or regulations…….



  6. 6

    The law isn't pathetic. Maybe you should come and see for yourself how bad the illegal immigrants have destroyed the state. They take over 60%of the state assistance funding and our the cause for over 80% of violent crimes. I say good riddance to them, we don't need there pathetic attempt at a comeback anyways. Just like Cypress or Pittbull not performing here, who do you think goes to there concerts?! Hispanics mainly go, so they're hurting their own people.



  7. 7

    This is bullshit. These big "stars" dont see the violence and crime that goes on out here. Because Arizona took a stand now everyone has to get their noses in it. And no where does it specifically state HISPANIC. It says Illegals…Yea Hollywood has an opinion now..they dont have to see the rapes, murders and cop killings..We here in Arizona do…We are VERY lenient in this country.
    I have friends who have taken the citizenship test. I feel its a slap in the face to those who do it legally. Its not about race. Its about being here illegally.
    And yes Arizona happens to be closest to Mexico.
    If people were to take the time to look at the news here 70-80% of the crimes are comitted by illegals. Prime example a month ago a lady and her husband were attacked in a convenience store. The man was trying to steal beer. The couple were attacked, the husband killed and his wife pistol whipped. Then the illegal who did it, his family hid him and sent him back to MX. His family was arrested for that…Its stuff like that - So ya know the people who are sitting here protesting it, read the bill, listen to the news and make youreself better informed. As for Lilith Fair - we dont need you here anyway…I personally hope that Arizona doesnt ever let you come back either…Its none of your business what we do here and unless your going to move here and help…then just keep your opinions to yourself…



  8. 8

    Yeah! It's a fucking horror show that people should be expected to FOLLOW THE LAW! Come over LEGALLY, pay taxes.

    Shit, you'd think that people would be happy about the discouragement to not pack people like sheep in storage containers trying to get them over the border. Or how about the illegals that come over and are enslaved by their coyotes until they can pay off their "debt"?

    Look at the numbers of how many illegals in AZ have multiple convictions in Mexico. These are not the cream of the Mexican crop - these are criminals who are coming over to get a fresh start by robbing your home.



  9. 9

    Okay, not that I care about seeing Lilith but Im growing very tired of the Celeb's "Protesting Az"…………First of all California has the very same law!! And for many years! So all these Celeb's that live there sould really take time to read a artical or two before they deside they have a clue what they are talking about! I say AZ should protest them…stop buying, playing or even caring about these people. We the fans are why you are who you are!! Dont forget that.



  10. 10

    Well then I will protest Lilith Fair! I would rather support a law that is meant to help the citizens of Arizona and the rest of the country.

    I find it interesting that all the people who are "protesting" the new Arizona law don't seem to have a problem with the fact that Mexico has the same law! If you go into Mexico you have to show proof of identity.
    And if they are here legally, then they will have nothing to worry about, if they are here illegally, then how can you make an argument in defense of them???



  11. 11

    Please pull out of New York!



  12. 12

    ANYONE who SUPPORTS illegal aliens will NOT get support from me or my money.

    Good riddance!



  13. 13

    Yeah Lilith Fair, standing up to the racist haters, like the ones who posted already. You suck. The white man has been in North America for 500 years, while the American Indians and Mexicans have been here over 12,000. Yet the white man thinks he controls the world.

  14. Bongo says – reply to this


    14

    OMG!!!! This is so STUPID! It's the friggin law! It's the Federal law! Stupid people. We have boarders for a reason. I support AZ all the way and anyone that doesn't just has their head up their ass. Hollywood needs to stay in their own lane! Get the fuck outta my government. Stupid Limo Liberals can kiss my ass.



  15. 15

    Re: MrsLambert – Why does following the law make you a "race hater?" I think ALL races should have to follow the law. If you want to live in this country, you have to go through the proper channels. Try going to other countries and living there illegally!! Doesn't happen. I am also tired of Hollywood trying to force their opinions on everyone. They do not live in the real world!!



  16. 16

    Screw Lilith fair - there tickets sales have been slow so they are doing this to get every dumbass to think they are relevant - which they haven't been for about 10 years.



  17. 17

    This is totally stupid……People supporting going against what is ALREADY FEDERAL lAW. Perez, take a trip down to the border here in AZ. Let me know, and we will take you there.



  18. 18

    Oh no! How is the Arizona's economy going to survive with The Go-Go's? Idiot.



  19. 19

    Go to pretty much any other country illegally, and you will be immediately booted out. It has been this way for years. America has been so lenient for much too long regarding illegal immigration, the worst of it being when Carter and Reagan were around. And now we are paying the price. Think about how many U.S. citizens are currently unemployed, vs. how many illegal immigrants currently have jobs. Think about the taxes you pay to help them and their children out, while they pay no taxes at all. Arizona is simply adopting the exact same standard as other countries, and the rest of the states need to follow suit. Immigrants are more than welcome in our country!! They just need to do so LEGALLY. Illegals have been using the "my child is a U.S. citizen so I can stay here" schtick for much too long. I have no sympathy for the families that are being broken apart by this. It should never have happened in the first place. That being said, illegal immigrants/families interested in applying for citizenship or green cards should be assisted (non-monetarily) in the process. I immigrated here when I was 3 with my family, and we all got green cards, and eventually citizenship. It can be done!

    BTW this just reinforces the fact that WA and Hollywood are completely out of touch with us commoners. I'm so tired of people that make more than the average American per year thinking that they know what's best for the rest of us. I bet none of these people have even read THE FEDERAL LAW. Because we all know that it's not getting enforced.



  21. 21

    IDIOTS - this law is NOT new law, just new that a State is FORCED to do the job that Federal government REFUSES to do. Just proves these performers are as ill informed as Perez seems to be as he continues to use HORrific moniker.



  22. 22

    Re: Bongo – It's BORDERS not BOARDERS. The "A" means someone who is renting a room, dumbass



  23. 23

    Maybe they should show their solidarity by performing in Mexico….you know right across the Arizona border. WGAS anyway. the Liith Fair???? please.



  24. 24

    What fools you musicians are!!! Arizona is a great state (and I am from NYC) and you need to keep entertainment and politics separate. I wont listen to any of your crappy songs again. You all should be banned from playing music I say.



  25. 25

    Will any entertainer be man enough to perform in Arizona. Hello there laws are the same laws that most other states have and enforce. If your an entertainer, just entertain and be happy anyone wants to buy tickets to your shows.



  26. 26

    Okay Lilith Fair, enjoy less money! None of the bands I enjoy have pulled out of concerts here, so these little stunts don't bother me.

    Illegal immigration bothers me. My fiance is a nurse here in Tucson and his hospital handles the majority of cases of dehydration/injury for people crossing the border illegally. Guess who pays their thousands of dollars worth of hospital bills? Hint: It's not them!

    I have no problem with immigration, I welcome anyone to get a visa and come over legally. Why do illegals think they're special and get to circumvent the laws? They give immigrants a bad name.



  27. 27

    Team Arizona. I support states rights.



  28. 28

    HELLO RACIST PEOPLE WHO LOVE COMING TO THIS LATINOS PAGE. PEOPLE ARE PISSED OFF ABOUT THIS LAW BECAUSE THERE IS GOING TO BE ALOT OF RACIAL PROFILING. THE LAW SAID TO QUESTION ANYONE WHOM MIGHT LOOK SUSPICIOUS OF BEING ILLEGAL. WHO DO YOU THINK IS GOING TO BE QUESTIONED ALL THE TIME? NO WHITE PERSON IS EVER GOING TO BE QUESTIONED SO ALL THOSE EUROPEANS WHO STAY AFTER THEIR VISAS EXPIRED HAVE NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT BECAUSE A WHITE PERSON COULD NEVER BE ILLEGAL ACCORDING TO THE RACIST POINT OF VIEW. NO ONE IS SAYING BEING ILLEGAL IS NO CRIME BUT QUESTION ALL RESIDENTS IN AZ OF EVERY COLOR WHEN THEY GET PULLED OVER FOR ANY REASON NOT JUST PEOPLE WITH DARK HAIR AND DARK EYES. AND ABOUT CRIMES AND SO ON THAT COMES IN EVERY COLOR TOO. NOT ONLY LATINOS COMMIT CRIMES AND FOR PEOPLE TO KEEP SAYING THAT IS BULLSHIT. EVERYONE KNOW ALL THE FAMOUS MASS MURDERERS ARE WHITE AND IF YOU WANT TO KID YOURSELF THAT ONLY LATINOS ARE THE PROBLEM THATS JUST YOUR BITTER RACIST ASS THAT CAN'T HANDLE SEEING THAT THIS WORLD IS NOT ALL WHITE.



  29. 29

    This is getting out of hand. This law was voted in by the representatives that Arizona citizens voted into office. Apparently this is something that the LEGAL RESIDENTS of Arizona wanted & to be honest, I can't blame them. If the illegal immigrants would 1. pay their taxes & 2. start the process of becoming legal citizens this law would be nonexistent. At least one state is trying to fight a problem the stupid jackasses on Capital Hill are afraid to work on.



  30. 30

    They cancelled because they were going to lose a shit load of money, the same reason the people of AZ would like our south of the boarder neighbors to stop throwing their poor over in to our state like unwanted garbage. We have cared for the hopelessly poor of Mexico, Columbia, Venezuela and Brazil as long as we could. But they breed like Bunnies with no thought to the damage they cause to themselves and the children. Pease Perez stop with the hypocrisy and maybe try to help those people to help themselves, by family planning, education and participation in the government of their OWN countries.
    You serve the good of NOTHING with your ghetto actions.



  31. 31

    i wish celebs would stay out of politics. annoying. follow the leader…drink the kool-aid.



  32. 32

    Umm, way to punish the fans. Until you live in Arizona and know what's going on down there, stop trying to paint this so black and white.

    Way to be girl-douches, ladies.



  33. 33

    NYCsep you are right on. You cannot leave the house without ID here in the city and to deliberate exempt illegals is to punish those who abide by the law. This is a law that reenforces a Federal Statute. And Mexico's laws are more draconian. Before you and the rest of the Hollywood numbskulls continue this meritless stand perhaps they should read the law, and realize that the non-celebrity populous MUST have an ID with them at all times. That goes for this idiot POTUS and the AGOTUS as well. They don't bend the law for us average folk.



  34. 34

    couldn't care less about this LEZ-FEST…



  35. 35

    Re: MrsLambert – well i'm half white half black and i support this AZ law. so are you going to call me racist? this law isn't new, it's a FEDERAL law. dumbass!



  36. 36

    WHY is it her fucking business what Arizona does? Does she LIVE there? Then fuck off!



  37. 37

    Re: Psycho I Be – instead of regurgitating the lies put forth by our Attorney General and President of the United States you should read the actual law!
    It does not say you can be stopped for looking illegal. They are only allowed to ask for paper when they stop the individual(s) in the process of a LAWFUL stop. That means if someone is driving erratically or they have a broken tail light (same reasons they would stop anyone of any ethnic background) or other such reasons. Stop screaming about a State who choses to enforce a FEDRAL STATUTE!



  38. 38

    What the hell is wrong with these people? Arizona DOES have a problem and they are trying to handle it the best way they know how because the Federal Government has overlooked this problem for ages. Go to Google and look up pictures of the "immigration superhighway" in the Sonoran Desert. Read the news articles about all of the kidnappings and murders at the hands of illegal hispanic immigrants. This problem is HUGE for them and Americans should be more supportive!



  39. 39

    Besides who the fuck cares about Belinda Carlisle? She's a talentless 80's has-been hack with a bad plastic surgeon! Uneducated PERFORMERS should keep their mouths closed!



  40. 40

    Re: Psycho I Be – Okay so I guess your stating anyone that agree's with the law is Racist?!?!?! Well Im half Mexican/ half White and Im proud to say I support this law!!!!!! This is a law that many states have, were you aware of that???????? Az is being spot lighted for it cause of the timing. All I can say is think before you speak!



  41. 41

    Stupid.



  42. 42

    also i read somewhere yesterday and find it interesting that some of these same latino or



  43. 43

    also i read something yesterday about these same latino organizations that are protesting this AZ law for it being "racist" (it's not) are pissed because obama is suppose to send more troops to help secure our borders. now why the fuck would they be so pissed about trying to secure our borders better?



  44. 44

    No…they pulled out because Arizona is like hell on Earth and its an outdoor event.



  45. 45

    COME ON YOU BLEEDING HEARTS!!! Illegal aliens are just that, ILLEGAL. Why should they be able to stay when they snuck in illegally? Why should offspring born here be given citizenship when the parents are illegal? Try staying in Mexico after your visa or FM3 expires and see how fast they deport your butt back to the St…ates. This country owes Arizona a debt of gratitude and more states should follow suit. .



  46. 46

    Re: Psycho I Be – First of all, no one on here said all the crimes committed in Arizona nor the country are by Latinos. Second of all, it is a fact that over 60% of AZ's crime is committed by illegal aliens. That is a pretty high statistic. With every single law on the books, racism can be a part of it. It is up to the people who enforce the law to make sure racism or racial profiling has no part of it. If the legal latino citizens feel that they are being unfairly racially targeted, they should take a stand against their illegal counterparts! But they don't! They support all their illegal doings. Also, being lumped in together by race is just part of human nature. I am a white blonde female and I am constantly being stereotyped that I am dumb, rich, ignorant, a republican, etc. It is up to me to prove the stereotypes wrong, not my neighbor, friend, co-worker, etc. Wake-up and grow up PSYCHO I AM



  47. 47

    This is really starting to drive me crazy. Do you people not realize that your tax dollars are going towards people living and working here illegally? Instead of it going towards education, repaving roads, fixing bridges or anything else we need here it's going towards someone who does not legally live here, is taking jobs from people who have all their life, like my father, and they are not contributing at all! Do they pay taxes? No. My grandparents came from Cuba and Puerto Rico and they went through all the proper channels to be a legal US citizen. Why can't everyone else? Some people are so stupid. You complain because there are no jobs, you complain because your tax dollars are wasted but when a state finally decides to stand up and do something about it, you get pissed off. WTF…



  48. 48

    Re: Psycho I Be – When you are pulled over, you are asked that. I am cuban, puerto rican, and white. Blond hair, blue eyes, fair complexion. I was visiting family 2 weeks ago and was pulled over for a no right on red and was asked all the questions, where are you going, where are you coming from, where do you reside, everything about my citizenship. And the cop asking me was HISPANIC! So is it ONLY racist if the cop asking is white? What is it when hispanic cops are doing the same thing? Hispanics against their own race? It's called doing your fucking job asshole! The people in Arizona are doing the dirty work so you can sleep better at night. People that have a problem with the law should take a walk through one of the neighborhoods and if you get out alive, let us know what it was like!



  49. 49

    I'm just glad they didn't cancel their shows in North Korea and Iran!That would have set off an international crisis!



  50. 50

    Do you people know how HARD it is to obtain your Green Card???? NO!!! Just because you have the money to start the process it does not mean you get approved. Not only is it A LOT of money but it is ALL a risk. So when you put your money to start the legal process you can get denied with no legit reason what so ever. And they do not give them their money back, so basically their money is gone. Coming to the U.S. illegally is prettier much a higher guarantee than coming to the U.S. legally.



  51. 51

    Perez, and any other in Hollywood who are disconnected from the reality that we Americans have to live through our entire lives, have you ever read the law? If you have, you will know it does not discriminate. If you looked at the real problem in AZ, you would know that Phoenix has the highest kidnap for ransom rates in the country. But clearly, anyone who has not read the law should not have an opinion on it. The law in AZ is extremely similar and was based off of the FEDERAL law.

    THe acts that are cancelling their AZ dates have not been relevant since the 90s, if they were ever relevant. No one cares about what Hollywood thinks. I would never base my opinion on this matter off of this pathetic website or anyone who based their life off of talking about other people.



  52. 52

    Agree with it or not…I respect their RIGHT to stand for their beliefs.



  53. 53

    Lame!



  54. 54

    I didn't know Belinda was an idiot too. Too bad I liked her music…mostly the 30 year old stuff.

    Heaven forbid we actually enforce laws and have a sovreign nation!



  55. 55

    They can feel free to leave with the illegal immigrants….Besides, Lilith Fair has been having very low ticket sales anyway. This way they can save face and say they are taking a stand at the same time. I hope more states pass similar laws to let the ILLEGALS know that they are NOT welcome.



  56. 56

    Re: NYCsep – I lived in NYC for 15 years and never once got arrested or asked for my ID, nor did I receive a ticket. The problem I have is, why should the PEOPLE of Arizona suffer for their shitty government? We had George Bush for 8 fucking years and it didn't keep bands from playing in the U.S. In fact it brought a lot of bands here to protest his "hot mess". If you take the speech out of "Free speech" you have nothing. At the very least people should be going down to Arizona and using their platform as artists to speak out against the bullshit law that will effect more U.S citizens than immigrants. And remember public "We are ALL immigrants". Just because your skin is lighter and from Europe doesn't mean you are any better. For those who agree with me I love YOU :)



  57. 57

    Re: Ilovelamp83 – When this law actually helps your problem let me know. If you have a problem, then TAX them instead of putting your own freedoms at risk by passing a backwards law. A law that will put more of your civil liberties at risk than any immigrants "illegal status". Read the law asshole.



  58. 58

    HMMMM…Angry unattractive man haters can't stand anyone who disagrees with their inane posturing…grab their toys & go home. Quelle suprise… elitist, phony jerks. If the average baby making machine showed up with its mariachi bands in tow, littering their local parks in soiled diapers they would SCREAM BLUE MURDER. They just want US to deal with all that crapola — while they look oh so CARING….fucking douche bags.



  59. 59

    I hope that all of the illegals who make money in the US and send it back to Mexico taking money out of America go to the Littlith Fair and crawl under the fences and do not pay to enter or enter illegally and no one pays to hear the GoGo's.



  60. 60

    Funny how NO ONE was pissed off at this law when it was just on a federal level. Now that a state is actually trying to enforce it, people…well law breakers, are pissed! The majority of people in the United States are ignorant & will just jump on a bandwagon because of what their TV told them. Try picking up a book, or a newspaper or watch something other than Fox News & maybe you will learn something & see how fucked we really are here. I'm for Arizona 100%.



  61. 61

    I hope that Belinda get's fat again.

    May the stink of a thousand sweaty illegal mexican's infest her crotch.



  62. 62

    Fuck the "lilith fair", fucking hippy lesbians.

    GO GO Arizona Law!!!! It gets my support. Hello you retards… it's for ILLEGALS. If they want in our country they have to fucking go about it the right way.



  63. 63

    Re: Psycho I Be – Nobody is saying any of the bullshit you're talking about. ALL people who are here illegally should have to show documentation. According to what racist point of view? Not everyone who supports this bill is racist. This is a made up premise. I don't care who you are, you shouldn't be her illegally. Did you read the bill? I doubt it. Because if you did you would know that the bill strictly prohibits racial profiling. And p.s. I am an American with Latino ancestors so get over yourself. We need to protect ourselves so that we actually continue to have a place where people can come to have a better life. Nobody is disputing the importance of legal immigrants. Read the fucking bill before you pop off at the mouth. If you already did and you still don't have enough common sense to understand it then it sounds like a personal problem. I am so sick of this bullshit. It's getting old fast. Part of the problem are these brain dead celebrities who know people are dumb enough to listen to lies. It's a way to get theirs names out there… plain and simple.



  64. 64

    GOOD!!! Not a hater but I'm so sick of ppl that know nothing about anything.



  65. 65

    Re: PreTTy*n*PinK – WHY IS THIS OUR PROBLEM???



  66. 66

    What part of ILLEGAL has no-one paid attention to?! If it's illegal to drink and dirve or take drugs and people get arrested for these, what's different about getting in trouble for being here illegally? Becoming a LEGAL tax-paying and law-abiding citizen is what gets you civil rights, not running across a border to suck society dry.



  67. 67

    Good for them, they are punishing their fans! Woo way to go!

    This is beyond dumb, this law is to get people BREAKING the law. If US citizens went into a country illegally they would be arrested! WTF is wrong with everyone seriously WTF?! US citizens have to carry ID's when they go to another country ….



  68. 68

    I hope everyone ELSE in the country cancels their tickets to this C__ts show! Complete idiots. As so many have already said, WHAT is the big deal? They should not have to conform to the same rules as we do either I guess. Why don't we just hand the f-ing country over to them, that's what these idiots are trying to do.



  69. 69

    Their tickets aren't selling worth a shit. Arizonia won't be the first cancelation. Wonder what the excuse will be for the next ones.



  70. 70

    i live an hour from the mexico/arizona border in tucson. the only people who are against the law are people who have no idea what the fuck they are talking about, people who know illegal aliens. and illegal aliens. everyone else agrees with it because OUR money is supporting these assholes. arizona is suffering and no one cares but us! if i were to go to mexico and try to live off their system, it would not happen, and I also would end up in jail.

    so fuck off all you celebrities who think you know what you're talking about. yes as an artist you might have an influence on culture, but the go-go's are yesterday's news. no one cares.



  71. 71

    This isn't political. The ticket sales were low! I live in the valley, I was watching, waiting to purchase tickets…there were lots and lots. The new law is a convenient excuse for any one that is not selling well.

    PS- The Arizona line up was not good. I'm sorry it was canceled…but not devastated



  72. 72

    haha I can't believe anyone believes that Belinda's point of view could have contributed to canceling Phx's Lilith Fair date. In reality, the show was selling very poorly- it was scheduled to be an outdoor event in the freakin' summer in Arizona! I live in Phx and seriously will not attend a summer outdoor concert unless I am close enough to the stage to benefit from the performers' air conditioning… Add the blistering heat to the fact that the Phx show had a lame lineup, and really, no one wanted to go…

    It's pretty amusing to think that Belinda's stupid- @ss ignorant politics could have had control over the canceling of this show. We don't need her in our lovely state anyway.



  73. 73

    All these celebs might change their mind when a lucky terrorist crosses the border and decides to blow something up. Does anyone realize this proplem? Visit AZ so you can see the real problem. I'm tired of getting fired from jobs so the owner can hire an illigal and pay them less under the table. I'm not paying tax's to have it all go to somebody that's not even a citizen. SOME PEOPLE ARE SOOOOOO EFFFING DUMB! GET OVER YOURSELVES. IT'S A LAW THAT WILL MAKE THIS COUNTRY BETTER. DUMB SHITS.



  74. 74

    Re: Psycho I Be – You're an idiot. AZ all the way!!!! I've lived there for 25 years and people who haven't, have NO REASON to judge. Racial profiling is political rhetoric being used to scare people into going against the law. If you think AZ police have nothing better to do than run around and pull people over because they have tan skin and brown eyes, you are ignorant. Now they can actually get rid of some of these ILLEGAL immigrants, and start protecting the LEGAL citizens of Arizona. Open your eyes, and don't let the liberal news pull the wool over your eyes. Anyone notice how the only people who are against this law are politicians who fear losing all their minority voters???? The residents of Arizona and other states are for this law. It won't be long before other states follow suit. They are already drafting up their own versions as we speak. WAY TO GO AZ!!!!!!!!!!

    Have any of these stupid celebrities even read the law? It's not like police see someone just walking by, and they go over to them and ask for their papers, which is what a lot of these idiots are thinking this law does. If the police have probable cause, like arresting you for a crime, they have the right to ask for citizenship. Other countries do this! Immigration is all good, but it has to be done LEGALLY! My mother is from the Philippines, and she got her green card, and eventually became a legal american citizen. Do it right, people, and read the damn law!!!

    I'm half Mexican on my father's side and on my mother's side I'm Irish, Welch, Dutch Norwegian etc. I fully support the law and I would be more than willing to co-operate and show my proof of citizenship if it means that it will find illegal immigrants and get them the hell out of Arizona and I don't mean just Mexicans, I mean all types of illegal immigrants. I don't see why people r complaining, we have to show our passport at the airport, credentials at the MVD, when we donate blood we have to go through our whereabouts & who we've had sex with. It's the least I can do when our military sacrifice their lives & here we r bitching about showing proof of citizenship.

    You Hollywood people are ridiculous.. Talking and "standing up" for things you don't understand and certainly haven't experienced. Why should illegal immigrants get a free pass when they break the law? Do you even realize that this is a FEDERAL LAW?? I'm an Arizona girl. I am truly not a racist person, but I fully support this law. Come live here for a while… Not in the beautiful resorts, but actually in the city… Come see what the fuss is about… Come to the ranches around the border and see what our local farmers have to deal with: dead bodies in their fields, garbage EVERYWHERE, and people being SHOT at. There was a rancher shot and killed by an illegal immigrant not to long ago. Watch our news, and then you tell me if we have a problem or not. Hell, if you have a better freaking solution, let us know! We've been asking, BEGGING, for help with this issue to DC for YEARS. And guess what? Obama actually took a TINY step in the right direction after this law passed.

    The new law is racist and if you don't think it's racist, you're a racist.

    My only irritation with these acts not coming to Arizona because of the new law is that I wish they contributed something to help us reverse it. Are they coming to marches? Are they sending money to support us? I'd sure like to know that.

    Re: pantalonescalientesphx – Trust me sweetheart, I couldn't be ANY farther from a racist. Come see my circle of friends, and my very close family that includes all kinds of people.. but I totally support Arizona. I support America. This country is going to shit, and it's because we're always worried about others, while we crumble beneath our kindness. I am born and raised in Las Vegas, and I welcome anyone to come here, if they do it legally and respectfully. I would never MOVE to Paris, and not learn French. Its respectful. I wouldn't move there and not pay their taxes, and abide by their laws. I wouldn't move there and have 10 kids and live off of their government, just because I can. Ridiculous. And to PRETTY IN PINK: yes it's expensive, and its a hard process, but it is the law and it shows the place YOU want to live great respect. If you don't like it, don't try and live here. These celebrities don't give a crap about this country unless it suits them. They adopt babies, and build schools, and fundraise BILLIONS for other countries CONSTANTLY, but don't even raise millions for us. They ask us to donate money, while we suffer and they drown in it. Ridiculous. WE need help too! And if any State in America wants to find any way to make things better, I'm all for it.

    I heard that Lilith Fair wasn't selling any tickets anyway. Ohh boo hoo, they won't get to hear crappy music they didn't want to hear anyway.

    Nice cover though… How are you going to explain away the other number of tour dates that are sure to be cancelled on the tour due to low ticket sales. Pathetic.

    Ive been a fan of Sara for years-way before she made the number one hits-and im disapointed that they decided to not come to Arizona-obviously their not a resident and they dont have to hear or see all the corruption here in this state- I AM NOT PREJUDICE OR RACIST- I am a mexican american-i do not stand for the new law- but i do love music and its a shame that they would cancel and make their fans suffer over a political issue that is out of our hands-BRING THE MUSIC BACK TO AZ- DONT MAKE US SUFFER -SERIOUSLY OPEN YOURE MIND AND DO YOURE HOMEWORK AND SEE WHY THEY DECIDED TO MAKE THIS ISSUE A LAW- ITS BAD OVER HERE- AND ITS ALSO SAD THAT SOME OF THE ILLEGALS HAVE MADE IT TO WHERE ALL OF THE PEOPLE HAVE TO SUFFER- I THINK THAT EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE THE CHANCE TO A AMERICAN LIFE BUT NOT WHEN ITS KILLING OUR POLICE AND RAPING AND MURDERING OUR RESIDENTS AND FILLING OUR STREETS WITH DRUGS-AND ITS NOT JUST THE ILLEGALS THAT ARE DOING IT- ANYWAYS ENOUGH WITH THIS SUBJECT.. WHO IS Belinda Carlisle TO MAKE THIS CHOICE? I dont even think she should be in the lilith fair..shes more of a pop group-bring all the old skool bands!

    Well this sucks. I was looking forward to seeing Marie Digby. Oh well, guess i'll have to road trip it to Cali!

    Oh God…people. We all know only Mexicans are the only ones on welfare, only Mexicans cheat the government by not paying taxes, and only Mexicans commit crimes. Also, south of the border only Mexico is a country so of course ALL illegals are also Mexicans. You know, since there's not a single other country south of the USA.
    I mean, come on…It's not like we've all been at a grocery and have seen some white trash mother with 3 kids holding up the line because she can't find her food stamps….
    You know ALL white people always pay their taxes.
    And if you go to jail, it's not like they have white supremacist gangs because white people NEVER go to jail because they NEVER commit crimes.
    I dont know where you guys went to school, but I know that all my life Ive known that white is right. ;)
    Its funny though, how I got here illegally as a baby, then got my paperwork done, then became a citizen, then even did some time in the military and surprisingly I have no children, Im not on welfare and Im not in jail! And Im also Mexican! Wow!!! I dont remember the government having a problem with me signing up to serve my country, but now if Im cruising through AZ I can get pulled over because I could look like an immigrant. Oh lawd….too funny.
    Well, been great serving this country which I consider mine. Hope that's not a problem since I am Mexican you know. :)

    Re: missymonoxide – I don't think anyone ever said the word "all". (In fact most people on here have used percentages) In general though, if people don't want to be thought of one way, they shouldn't act that way, but nothing should ever go into an "all" state of mind, its a majority thing. I am white, and I do not think in anyway that my race is perfect. We're all f'ed

    Lilth Fair hasn't been selling well. I'm sure that was just a cover to pull out and not take a blood bath in the lack of ticket sales.
