China Bans Cradle of Filth

2013-02-26 by TrstN01 | 57 Comments
The communists in the Chinese government have decided that British extreme metallers Cradle of Filth are unsuitable for performance on the mainland. The ban does not, however, apply to the island territory of Hong Kong. The band has moved the Chinese date of their current tour to a venue (Kowloonbay International Trade & Exhibition Centre) where it is unlikely they will be arrested and never heard from again. The date (April 30th) has not changed.

The original post from the band about this can be read here:

This is something that would've happened in their earlier years. They're too much of a joke these days

Hong Kong barely associates itself with the rest of China. The people there have all the freedom they want.

The ban will probably be lifted after this month since they are transitioning into a democratic state.

Please be advised that the upcoming CRADLE OF FILTH dates are being cancelled due to immigration issues. The band cannot gain entry into the Country at this time.
