Michelle Shocked's Upcoming Concert Dates Canceled After Anti-Gay Rant


Michelle Shocked


Almost the entire U.S. tour of the folk singer vanishes after the venues of her upcoming concerts cancel her shows.

Following her anti-gay rant during her San Francisco show on Sunday night, March 16 at live events place Yoshi's, folk singer/songwriter Michelle Shocked would now have to deal with the consequences of her actions. One of which is the apparent disappearance of the rest of her U.S. tour after the venues of her supposed next shows themselves decided to cancel her remaining tour dates.

So far, only one out of the eleven performances she was scheduled to play remains not cancelled, the one set for Harmony Bar in Madison, Wisconsin. The ten other clubs where she was supposed to play have chosen to call off the 51-year-old entertainer's shows, which may have been prompted by a petition created on Change.org by LGBT activist John Becker asking the venues of Shocked's upcoming concerts to cancel her show.

Among those pulling the Grammy Award-winning singer from their schedule were clubs in Santa Cruz (California), Evanston (Illinois) and Meander's Kitchen (Seattle). Telluride Bluegrass Festival in Colorado was the latest to respond to the petition that got almost two thousand supporters to date.

Apart from the cancelled gigs, Shocked also has to deal with the backlash that she's getting online from Twitter users. Although a select few were supportive of her, giving messages of forgiveness and prayers for the beleaguered artist, many are still enraged by her latest homophobic stunt.
