W.A.S.P.According to a post on their website this morning, W.A.S.P have canceled their 24 date US tour scheduled to kick off July 11 at West Hollywood’s Key Club. The band claims that their North American label losing distribution is the reason for the cancellation; I call bullshit. While their North American label may have in fact lost distribution (no word yet on whether this is true or not), this is most certainly not the reason for the tour cancellation. Nobody is counting on W.A.S.P.’s latest record to drive ticket sales on the tour; people aren’t going to see a band like this to hear the new songs, they’re going to hear all the hits. The more likely culprit was poor ticket sales. Promoters were probably getting antsy when tickets weren’t selling for the 1000 to 1500-capacity clubs W.A.S.P. were scheduled to play, and the band and heir management collectively decided to pull the plug to avoid embarrassment.

No word yet on whether W.A.S.P. will still be playing the massive Rocklahoma Festival in July.
