Hey Canadians, leave the stealing and sketchy business for us here in the US. I love Canada but their crime rate seems to be on the rise and it is getting harder and harder to get a work visa if you are between 18 and 30. So WTF.

Not that this has ANYTHING to do with Iggy but...

Umph fans are not Kanye fans. Obviously Umph fans are more sympathetic/empathetic towards their band. As well, these situations are rather different. In the Umph/STS9 case, ran cancelled the show. In the Kanye case, it just seemed to be a lack of effort on a lot of parts and a great deal of complaining on the part of Kanye (if u read his blog)

Anyways... that sucks for Iggy!!! I hate reading shit like that. Fuck Canada

seriously jkuss, shut the hell up. you missed one show because the stage was falling down and this is somehow the bands fault? man people like you piss me off. i just missed nine inch nails in minneapolis after waiting for 6 months because trent reznor had voice problems. shows get cancelled, yes it sucks, but being a whiny little bitch and posting on unrelated boards is not going to get your sts9 trance back. grow up. get over it. and now you forced me to rant on an unrelated board as well. i do not like you. i apologize to everyone else. but you, jkuss, i do not like.

jkuss, thats the dumbest shit i've ever heard. the masquerade show got cancelled because it was absolutely impossible to play with no power. on top of that, the stage sould have easily collapsed. kanye's crybaby megalomaniacal ass has a hissy fit because phil would be finishing his set while kanye came on. he forced them to ask phil to quit early, then refused to go on because his lame-as-fuck little light show was designed for arenas and couldn't be supported by that stage, so they couldn't hang it all. he fucked up that entire night because he's a primadonna pussy and can't put on a half decent show without a bunch of distractions. um and sts9 were logistically incapable where as kanye chose not to. how dare you defend that drain on the musical world. and on top of that, they did come out and say something to the crowd, but you were probably too busy crying in the parking lot as soon as you saw them breaking down the satge. wipe your tears and go on kanye tour friend.....

Why doesn't Warren Haynes buy them some new equipment? Everyone on this site thinks he's such a caring and giving man...
