Earlier in the week, we told you about singer-songwriter Michelle Shocked, onstage in San Francisco, going on an anti-gay rant, which included lines like, “I live in fear that the world will be destroyed if gays are allowed to marry” and “Go on Twitter and say ‘Michelle Shocked says God hates fags.’” Shocked hasn’t commented on the events, save retweeting both positive and negative reactions to her. Her potential venues have responded, however, as Billboard confirms that ten out of her eleven upcoming tour dates have been canceled. At least they weren’t all canceled? Well, not exactly, when Billboard called to question the one hold-out, Madison’s Harmony Bar, the person answered, “I won’t know a damn thing until the boss comes back in eight days.”
