Jamey Johnson Abruptly Cancels HoB Show

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (CelebrityAccess) — A concert by outlaw country singer-songwriter Jamey Johnson was canceled at the last minute after Johnson reportedly refused to pass through a metal detector.

According to Rolling Stone, Johnson was due to perform at the House of Blues in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, on Sunday night, but Johnson and his team ran afoul of the venue's security policies.

Fans arriving a the venue for the show were instead greeted with a sign on the door announcing that the show was canceled.

"As always, the safety and security of our guests is our number one priority," the sign said, per Rolling Stone. "Tonight's artist refused to adhere to our safety and security guidelines and would not enter the building."

The House of Blues maintains a strict 'no weapons' policy that only became more stringent in the wake of the deadly bombing attack after an Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena in May.

Johnson's drummer Tony Coleman told Rolling Stone that the situation was not as cut and dried.
