Apparently The Boys China tour was canceled because of this tour poster

The Boys


Yesterday we posted about legendary UK punk band The Boys who recently released a LIVE album completely recorded in secrecy in China after their whole tour got canceled. On our social network our buddy Tyler, the drummer of Shanghai hardcore band Spill Your Guts, shared that there was much more to the story then simply being “banned” by the Chinese government. He pointed at the fact that the punk rock band used quite confrontational artwork on their tour poster that led the authorities to check up on the band which they then found out was in the country without proper work permits for a tour. Now, as most bands that tour China can tell you – ANY band can enter the country on tourist visas and there will be no issues. Unless you’re out there poking the bear – once that bear is up and running, yes, you will have problems.

What are your thoughts on this poster which led to The Boys having their entire tour canceled? is an underground Asian music news website created for the sole purpose of supporting our own world.
