Bostonian-turned-Californian folk-punk singer-songwriter Bryan McPherson has once again been tabbed (along with Blood Or Whiskey) as an opener for Dropkick Murphys on their upcoming eleven-date tour that runs from California to Oklahoma. Thanks to the long arm of the law that is The Walt Disney Company, McPherson will only be playing ten of the eleven dates. McPherson took to Facebook to explain:
BANNED by Disney!!! Well holy fucking shit people, I just got Banned from playing the Anaheim show (editor’s note: show date is November 5th) by Disney since the venue is in their complex. The reason? My “Anti-political police views and drug insinuation”. Well I’m honored they actually listened to the words. I’m floored. What an honor!!!
We’ve reached out to Disney, LiveNation and the House of Blues in Anaheim for comment (seriously…we have!). As of this writing, it’s been all radio silence, but we’ll keep you posted. Head below for the full tour rundown.
