Last month, NOFX took their unapologetic humor too far by making a joke about the Las Vegas shooting when they performed at the Punk Rock Bowling & Music Festival in Las Vegas, NV on May 27th. Many didn’t find their comedic act funny as in reality, it was offensive and controversial. The group have since sincerely apologized, which arguably was their first apology in their entire career. According to a recent social media post, frontman Fat Mike revealed every US show scheduled for the band has been cancelled.
Fat Mike stated:
“Fuck it! I’m not supposed to talk about it, but because of the comments we made in Las Vegas… every NOFX show has been cancelled in the US. We did not drop off the shows…. we were told that NOFX is not welcome to play ANY big venue in the United States. No joke! NOFX has effectively been banned in our own country. This is not our choice, but it is our reality. We are very sorry to our fans, especially the ones in Austin. For now, we are playing in Europe, Mexico, and Canada. The Punk in Drublic Festival is still happening in Europe and other continents. I’m trying my best to bring it back to the US but a lot of people don’t want it to happen. It fuckin sucks! We made a mistake, we apologized, and we gotta suffer the consequences. Maybe it ain’t fair, but whoever said life was. We are just very thankful that our fans are being so supportive. Thanks to all of you!!!!!
See y’all in Slovenia tomorrow!”
We aren’t entirely sure if this is a temporary ban, but we hope to find out soon enough.
