Another Machine Head/Throwdown show has apparently be rerouted due to Disney
pressuring a promoter. According to the headliner, The Walt Disney Company have once again pressured promoter Live Nation into canceling the performance at a House of Blues venue on Disney property, this time in Orlando, a mere four days after the band's previous announcement called out the corporation
According to the band's statement, sources close to events have suggested that once again, vague threats of liability, and now threats on job security may have been levied, successfully resulting in the show being moved off of Disney property. As a result, the September 17 show has now been relocated to Club Firestone in Orlando , FL.
In the earlier report, a previous show was cancelled due to concerns about "violent imagery, undesirable fans and inflammatory lyrics."
