Disney Gives Barenaked Ladies the Boot

 

 

Parents,
lock up your sons and daughters, the Canadians are coming (not).

In the wake of last week’s cocaine
bust
for Barenaked Ladies lead singer Steven Page and the group already canceling
one appearance — next month’s Disney-sponsored Playskool Play Aid Benefit
Concert on Long Island to benefit four
children’s charities — it now appears that the once squeaky-clean Canadian
popsters won’t be doing ANY more shows for The Mouse.

 

Word arrives today that the group is
being replaced on the family friendly tour — full name: “Disney Music Block
Party Tour Featuring the Playskool Play Experience” — by They Might Be Giants
and others (the lineup varies from one city to the next), possibly Dan Zanes
and Ralph’s World. In fact, if you go to the official website you now will find
no mention whatsoever about Barenaked Ladies. The only artists currently listed
are TMBG, Imagination Movers, Choo Choo Soul and host Raven Symone.

 

Let’s face it, parents: you didn’t
want those clowns performing for your kids anyway, did you? Dan Zanes fucking
rocks — keep your fingers crossed.

 

And that, as the saying goes, is that.
