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??
