“BEASTS OF THE EAST” TOUR CANCELLED

The remaining dates for the Beasts of the East Tour, featuring Permanent ME, Bedlight for Blue Eyes, and Scenes from a Movie, have been cancelled. Long Island, NY Indie ensemble Permanent ME released the following statement via their MySpace blog explaining why:

“Due to circumstances beyond our control, we can no longer continue the tour. Basically, the Junior Varsity was suppose to play the dates with us, then bailed to jump on another tour and then bailed off of that. The problem with this was that they were supposed to be the headliners and when they dropped, the rooms downsized as well. On top of that, Scenes from a Movie had then dropped off last night in Jacksonville due to some personal issues…so us and Bedlight for Blue Eyes had no other choice but to cancel the remaining dates on the tour because it turned into a two band package. We really didn’t want to do this, and we are not the type of band to just drop off of a tour unless there is a valid reason. Sorry to anyone who went down to the Social in Orlando tonight thinking there would be a show…We promise to try to make it up to you guys in the Midwest ASAP!!!”

Plans are still in tact for the east coast band’s tour with The Starting Line, running from September 13 to September 28. The band also announced east coast dates for their tour with Secondhand Serenade, starting October 4, and plan to announce additional dates in the future. Dates below:.
