    LAMB OF GOD has been BANNED from performing at the Forum in Los Angeles. The band is being forced to step aside from one of their arena concerts on the upcoming Subliminal Verses Tour with Slipknot.

    The venue, The Forum in Los Angeles, is owned by The Faithful Central Bible Church who decided to impose a ruling to BAN LAMB OF GOD from performing at their venue.

    LAMB OF GOD have come off of several extremely successful headlining runs through L.A. in the last year, so this move comes completely unexpected for the band and the tour as a whole. Los Angeles is, and has always been, a huge market for the band, building steadily with each one of their releases and tours and exploding with the bands current release Ashes of the Wake.

    In deciding to BAN the band, The Faithful Central Bible Church are restricting freedom of speech, choice and assembly, and our art and ability to conduct commerce.

    In response, drummer Chris Adler points out the following:

    "The "situation" in LA can only be described as ridiculous. It has already been a huge waste of energy trying to turn this around. The powers that be are not interested budging - or doing their research apparently - and we have never been a band to placate anyone to get our way, smooth things over or make anyone feel better. They have made it clear that they do not want us because of our name, our show and our crowd - because of that ignorance, LAMB OF GOD is not being permitted to appear on the Subliminal Verses Concert in LA. It is truly a shame for the show overall, especially for our friends and fans in LA that are being forced to miss our part of the show. Trust that this was not our decision, we would love to kick some ass in LA, but apparently the word from the powers that be is that LAMB OF GOD is not the wholesome family fun that the good people of Los Angeles deserve."

    Ha! and you all thought this went in KickBack Cafe...

    People are weird... I think they should have a bunch of LoG fans protest outside of the place...

    Good point, even with all the pentagrams on their drums, the Christians don't ban them... I give up on people.

    That article makes it seem like they just banned Lamb Of God, thus eliminating them from that show, forcing either Slipknot to get a replacement for the opener for that one show, or just do 2 sets.

    The band is being forced to step aside from one of their arena concerts on the upcoming Subliminal Verses Tour with Slipknot.
    That means Lamb Of God is being forced off the bill for one show, while Slipknot gets to play still.

    They are but they&#39;re not "evil." Then again, neither is Lamb of God.

    Maybe the people banning LOG are Bush supporters? If so, it&#39;d be one of the fucking stupidest reasons why&#33; I doubt it though

    I think it has something to do with the music they perform, and then combine that with their name, and you have a viable reason in their minds to ban them.

    That&#39;s true. But if I remember right, they don&#39;t even swear in their music...

    Stupid people.

    I wasn&#39;t really talking about the lyrics per say, I&#39;m more talking about the vocals/sound of the music.

    You don&#39;t remember right.

    This has NOTHING to do with the music they perform. I have heard many Christian bands who are accepted and they have much crazier music than LoG.

    To the quote where he says its ignorant, well, their band name is ignorant in itself, and plus, it&#39;s the owners of the venue&#39;s choice, so I don&#39;t see a problem.
