American rock band Filter has had one of its concerts cancelled after it posted an anti-Trump message on its Facebook account.
Richard Patrick, the band's lead singer, uploaded a video to the band's Facebook page, made during the sound check at the Speaking Rock Entertainment Centre in El Paso, Texas.
Alongside the video, Patrick wrote:
This is sound check!! We’re Playing El Paso!!!
Get Here!!! Later and it will be packed!! A lot of trump bashing!
Does anyone know Beto?? Bring Beto!
However, not long after the light-hearted anti-Trump message was posted to their Facebook account, Patrick made another post on the band's Instagram account, saying that the gig had been cancelled.
In the post, he explained that the venue 'didn't like' the post, and that they were getting bomb threats and threatening calls from Texans who didn't like it either. The venue also took issue with the band's plans to display the American flag upside down during the performance, claiming it was 'illegal' to do so.
