Kottonmouth Kings cancel tour, including Vegas date

Bummer news for Kottonmouth Kings fans. The Kings will no longer be holding court at the Hard Rock for “Friday Night Live at the Pool” on June 19. The show is canceled; refunds are available at the point of purchase.

Oh, and just in case you’re one of those die-hards who’s willing to hop in the station wagon with the whole fam damily and road trip to wherever else they’re playing, don’t break out the gas card just yet. Turns out, the Kings are not playing anywhere else. Not right now, anyway. The whole summer tour’s been postponed so they can finish recording.

Fret not, though, all is not lost. If they’re in the studio, that means there’s a new record in the pipeline, which means the dudes will undoubtedly be back sometime later this year to support it. Here’s the word, straight from the Kings themselves, via Facebook:

“We regretfully have postponed the Summer tour dates to finish our studio work for the new KMK Krown Power record.

We have the tremendous task of launching our new United Family Music.

We encourage you to go support (Hed) p.e. All pre-sales will be credited to use that same ticket. 2 for 1 for the KMK Fall tour.

Have a great summer! We can’t wait to share this next chapter of music and life with you!

Thank you for your dedication, loyalty and understanding…

Krown Power drops August 28th 2015!”

So there you have it, although, in the interest of alleviating any potential confusion caused by that bit about supporting (Hed) p.e., now’s a good time to reiterate: The Vegas show is not happening. We repeat: not happening.

So until further notice (namely until (Hed) p.e. announces another date or venue), if you want to support the act, you’ll have to do so on the road. Adding further clarity, (Hed) p.e. has made it clear that it has not amended its tour plans for the summer — well, at least in terms of scratching all the dates: “we NEED this tour and we NEED you to come out and support.”

With that in mind, the Spokane, Wash., show is still on, but it’s been moved to The Pin, and the Denver and Colorado Springs shows are still on the books. We’ll keep you posted if we hear anything about a show in Vegas.

In the meantime, if your heart’s set on a taking a road trip, now would be a great time to start warming up the hooptie.
