Another Ariz. Show Bites The Dust

02:03 PM Friday 6/4/10 |   |

Los Lobos has joined the group of artists protesting Arizona’s new immigration law by canceling next week’s scheduled performance in Scottsdale, Ariz.

The show would have taken place June 10 at The Talking Stick Resort.

“We support the boycott of Arizona,” the Grammy-award winning roots-rock band said in a statement on its website.

“The new law will inevitably lead to unfair racial profiling and possible abuse of people who just happen to look Latino. As a result, in good conscience, we could not see ourselves performing in Arizona. We regret the inconvenience this may have caused the Salt River Pima Maricopa Indian Community, Casino Arizona, Talking Stick Resort and our fans, but we feel strongly that it is the right thing to do.”

The New York Times describes the new law, SB 1070, as “the nation’s toughest bill on illegal immigration,” explaining that “its aim is to identify, prosecute and deport illegal immigrants.” Police in the border state will be required to ask people about their immigration status if officers suspect they are illegal immigrants. Gov. Jan Brewer signed the law April 23 and it goes into effect in late July.

In May both Pitbull and Cypress Hill canceled shows in Arizona to make a statement against SB 1070. Last week Rage Against the Machine’s Zack de la Rocha announced he had formed a group called The Sound Strike to boycott booking any gigs in Arizona. Artists joining the strike include Sonic Youth, Joe Satriani, Kanye West, Juanes, Conor Oberst, Los Tigres Del Norte, Café Tacvba, Calle 13, Serj Tankian, Ozomatli, Rise Against and Tenacious D.

The New York Times pointed out that the Sound Strike list was “light on mainstream ‘big tent’ performers who can fill stadiums, and included no country music performers.” On the other hand, some Latin artists who’ve publicly spoken out against the law, including Shakira and Larry Hernandez, have not added their names to The Sound Strike. (Although neither artists have any upcoming shows in Arizona.)

According to the paper, Arizona’s Hispanic population is estimated at nearly one-third of the state’s six million residents.

    Boycott the State of Arizona. Remove her from the Union as well.

    Its so sad that bands feel the need to do this. I am one to follow your heart and your beliefs but they are hurting no one but their fans and they will most likely lose a few along the way. I was a fan of one of the listed bands and am no longer. The only band that should fear going to AZ is Cypress Hill just for the fact that they might actually get deported (j/k).

    That's awesome all 6 people who were gonna be at the los lobos show are gonna be dissapointed.

    seriously what is it about cutting back on the criminal illegal element that just pisses people off?

    277,000 illegals in American jails who wants to pay for that?

    Another Artist Cancels AZ...   Your not hurting anyone by cancelling your show.... Yeah Right, people make plans, buy plane tickets, book hotels, can't get refunds for stuff they have purchased, take time off from work.  Yeah jump on the bandwagon for a boycott.  Its your fans that you are hurting not the State of Arizona.  Your band might be a little impact on the state but your just a small voice.  I am not from AZ but I wouldn't make plans to see any band that would cancel a show just to boycott after you have booked a date.  It does no justice for you to say SORRY to your Fans.  How about refunding all the money the fans spent in their arrangements to see you, not just the ticket price.
