Cypress Hill Cancels 5/21 Show Over SB 1070

We regret to inform you that Cypress Hill has canceled their scheduled performance on Friday, May 21st, due to their opposition to Arizona Senate Bill 1070, aka the illegal immigration bill.

Refunds will be issued at point of purchase or automatically if you paid with a credit card.

We will be surprised if this doesn't continue to happen unless this bill is repealed or struck down by courts as unconstitutional.

If you support the Rialto and other businesses that are dependent on performing artists and tourism, please take a moment to let the state legislature and the Governor know that SB 1070 is hurting Arizona business.

The Tucson Sentinel covers the story

A post at the Arizona Daily Star

The Tucson Weekly posts the letter Rialto GM Curtis McCrary wrote to Cypress Hill to attempt to persuade them to undertake the show.

Coverage in the Phoenix New Times

The Arizona Republic writes about it (try to avoid the comments section unless you're a masochist or at war with common sense and good grammar).

Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik explains why SB 1070 infringes on rights and is bad for local law enforcement offices (reposted from the Wall Street Journal).
