All Of NOFX’s U.S. Shows Have Been Cancelled Following Las Vegas Shooting Joke

All of NOFX’s scheduled U.S. shows have apparently been cancelled. According to Fat Mike, the band have essentially been banned from large venues in the country due to their infamous Las Vegas shooting joke at the Punk Rock Bowling & Music Festival. The group have since apologized for their comments.

Fat Mike said the following:

Fuck it! I’m not supposed to talk about it, but because of the comments we made in Las Vegas… every NOFX show has been cancelled in the US. We did not drop off the shows…. we were told that NOFX is not welcome to play ANY big venue in the United States. No joke! NOFX has effectively been banned in our own country. This is not our choice, but it is our reality. We are very sorry to our fans, especially the ones in Austin. For now, we are playing in Europe, Mexico, and Canada. The Punk in Drublic Festival is still happening in Europe and other continents. I’m trying my best to bring it back to the US but a lot of people don’t want it to happen. It fuckin sucks! We made a mistake, we apologized, and we gotta suffer the consequences. Maybe it ain’t fair, but whoever said life was. We are just very thankful that our fans are being so supportive. Thanks to all of you!!!!! See y’all in Slovenia tomorrow!

NOFX Issue Apology Following Las Vegas Shooting Remarks

NOFX have officially issued an apology after making a joke about the October 2017 Las Vegas, NV shooting during their set at the Punk Rock Bowling & Music Festival. You can read that below. This news comes after the group were dropped from their “Camp Punk In Drublic” festival and after they lost their partnership with Stone Brewing Co.

NOFX’s apology:

“There’s no place here to backpedal. What NOFX said in Vegas was shameful. We crossed the line of civility. We can’t write songs about how people in this world need to be more decent, when we were clearly being indecent. Las Vegas has always been a welcoming city to our band, and to make light of the tragedy that occurred there was egregious.

All members of the band would like to sincerely apologize to anyone who experienced loss from the Vegas shooting 8 months ago, and to anyone who was at our show who lost a loved one or a friend, or who had to witness the incredibly senseless violence that night.

We were asked why we didn’t release an immediate apology. Well, we didn’t feel that we could write a sincere apology without reflecting on the actual damage we had done. No press agent was gonna write this for us. That’s why we have struggled with this for the past few days.

We didn’t plan or intend on saying anything so insensitive. It was off the cuff, but just as hurtful. We won’t blame it on drugs or alcohol or Ambien. That’s too easy. NOFX said it, and we own it. We made a tasteless joke. But to be clear, NOFX does not condone violence against ANY group of people, period!

As sincere as we’ve ever been,
NOFX”

NOFX Drop Off “Camp Punk In Drublic” Following Las Vegas Shooting Remarks

NOFX are continuing to face backlash after making a joke about the October 2017 Las Vegas, NV shooting during their set at the Punk Rock Bowling & Music Festival. Now, the group and Me First And The Gimme Gimmes, who also feature Fat Mike, have both been dropped from “Camp Punk In Drublic”. Fat Mike was one of the organizers of the event along with Synergy Global Entertainment and Brew Ha Ha Productions. Descendents and The Vandals will perform in their places.

NOFX have since issued a pre-apology:

“I can’t sleep, no one in my band can. What we said in Vegas was shitty and insensitive and we are all embarrassed by our remarks. So we decided we will all get together to discuss and write an in depth, sincere, and honest apology because that’s what the people we offended and hurt deserve.”

The festival also issued a statement:

“Camp Punk In Drublic festival producers have announced that NOFX and Me First And The Gimme Gimmes (featuring Fat Mike) will not be performing at this weekend’s festival at Legend Valley near Columbus, OH.

Descendents have been added to the Saturday festival lineup, replacing NOFX, and The Vandals have been added to the Friday Night Kickoff Party, replacing Me First and the Gimme Gimmes.

While NOFX is known for their dark, uncomfortable humor, the festival producers of Camp Punk In Drublic are shocked and disappointed by the band’s recent statements about the Route 91 Harvest Festival victims and country music fans. These statements do not reflect the feelings or views of the Camp Punk In Drublic festival, its staff, and its sponsors.

The festival producers support fans of all music genres and take safety very seriously at all of their events.

Out of respect for Route 91 Harvest Festival victims and their families, Camp Punk In Drublic will make a donation to a fund benefiting those affected by the 2017 tragedy.”

Furthermore, NOFX have also lost their partnership with Stone Brewing Co., who was sponsoring the event and brewing the band’s “Punk In Drublic” beer. The brewer said the following:

“We at Stone Brewing are aware of NOFX’s insensitive and indefensible statements this past weekend. As a result, we are severing all our ties with NOFX, including festival sponsorship and the production of our collaboration beer.”
