Beautiful Creatures NOT at Rocklahoma?

Posted on Wednesday, April 30, 2008 at 12:01AM by Registered CommenterAllyson B. Crawford | Comments6 Comments

Joe Leste was all set to bring his Beautiful Creatures to Rocklahoma on Sunday, July 13...but now, something has gone awry.

Just hours ago, Beautiful Creatures left this simple bulletin on their Myspace page:

"BEAUTIFUL CREATURES WILL NOT BE PLAYING ROCKLAHOMA 2008."

It couldn't get any more cut and dry than that except that the band still has the Rocklahoma gig listed in their upcoming shows - but all other performances are now deleted. I should note that at the time of this writing, Beautiful Creatures are still listed on the official band roster and Pollstar.

I guess this means there are now two TBAs for Sunday. I must admit I am a little sad about losing Beautiful Creatures from the Rocklahoma lineup. I like Joe Leste and I was looking forward to some more modern music on the last day of the festival.

 

At any rate, here's the video for "Step Back."

NOW that is what I call a "LET DOWN" BC are one of my fav bands and it's a shame that anthems like "1am" and "New Orleans" will not be ringing out at ROCKLAHOMA this year.

You shouldn't blame the producers of the show...Do you really think that they would put out a line-up and than cancel them? They would still have to pay them the agreed amount...If the band broke the contract it's there lose...maybe you people should stop bitching about the people who work their asses off at these shows so we can all have a good time. Fucking crybabies anyway...

rockgirl sounds like one of the "internet police" that were coming onto fevertalk.net trying to tell people to accept what was given and shut up about it. while it's true it's not crocklahoma's fault if a band cancels (see krokus) your way of stating this leaves a lot to be desired. perhaps you should goosestep on over to another website if you don't like what's being said on this one. here's a thought, if it seems like everyone is griping about the lineup then maybe there's something to that, maybe the lineup leaves something to be desired and people shouldn't just take the crumbs being thrown their way. maybe crocklahoma can learn something about trying to appeal to their potential fans instead of antagonizing them. just my opinion though...........i could be wrong.
