You can forget about seeing Cradle Of Filth in the U.S. and Canada during the next couple of months. Announcing the cancellation of its March-April tour that was to begin Feb. 22 in New York City, the British band blamed the bad news on “U.S. immigration issues” beyond their control.
The band also apologized to their fans, saying they “made every effort possible” to continue with their touring plans.
Former Fox News Channel commentator Glenn Beck has booked Salt Lake City’s Usana Amphitheatre for one night only, July 6. Titled “Man In The Moon,” the evening is described on his website as “the exciting new stage spectacle by America’s premier storyteller,” namely GB himself.
Other descriptions abound, including “It’s Glenn Beck’s imagination come to life,” “Will excite and engage all your senses” and “at times it will seem to defy logic.”
But mere words on the screen aren’t enough to adequately illustrate an evening with Mr. Beck. So we grabbed this video featuring the man himself telling you what you need to know:
