Next Wednesday’s Buju Banton concert at Club Nokia in Los Angeles has been canceled, following a string of dates nixed from the homophobic reggae artist’s American tour. Interestingly, Queerty reader Travon says Ticketmaster was still selling tickets around midnight last night, while two days ago the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center issued a celebratory press release about this concert’s cancellation. And while the Center has also claimed victory in San
Francisco, this week received this email advertising Buju’s show there, at the Rockit Room, on Monday (with a performance in nearby Berkley this Saturday):
And tickets are still available for purchase.
Buju’s SF show was originally scheduled for the Regency Ballroom. That was axed, but it appears the Rockit Room has no problem hosting him. So it’s not like Buju has been kicked out of the Bay Area; he’s just been relocated.
UPDATE: Similar story in Dallas: Buju just relocated.
