Los Angeles, CA (CelebrityAccess) — Post-hardcore/rock outfit letlive reports that they have been pulled from the bill of an April 3rd at the House of Blues outlet in Lake Buena Vista, FL.
The group had been set to perform with Taking Back Sunday and The Menzingers. According to the group, the decision to pull them from the lineup was prompted by pressure from Disney.
In a statement, a spokesperson for the band wrote:
"Ladies and Gentlemen that were planning on attending the Lake Buena Vista, Florida date at the House Of Blues on the upcoming tour with Taking Back Sunday and The Menzingers and expecting to see ll.- due to reasons we cannot control, we will not be permitted to play said date. We have just been notified by the people at Disney Orlando/HOB that we have been pulled from the event. We cannot offer any details as to why since we were given none ourselves. Rumor has it that Goofy, Pluto, and most of Toontown were in protest against the decision, but Chairman Mouse exercised veto powers and struck down the proposition in the end. In the meantime, we will be trying to set up a one off at another venue in place of the this. Thank you so much for the unwavering support. It's moments like these we deeply appreciate it/you."
A request for comment from HoB was not returned at the time of publication. – Staff Writers
