Anti-gay musician Buju Binton’s Dallas show canceled

Change.org reported yesterday that concert promoter Live Nation has canceled Buju Binton’s concert at the House of Blues in October. Live Nation was under fire by the people at Change who protested Live Nation’s involvement with the Jamaician dancehall musician and petitioned members to boycott the promoters. Binton is notorious for including severely homophobic remarks in his songs.

Live Nation announced the cancellation yesterday which included his Dallas and Houston shows, both at House of Blues.

Kettle Art owner and artist Frank Campagna paints the concert panels House of Blues posts outside. He read about the cancellation today from the Advocate. “I painted this sucker for them and now it’s no good. And that’s just fine because obviously he’s no good,” Campagna said.
