Well, people might as well hear it here first: the Slipknot concert has been officially cancelled. Not that I give anything even remotely resembling a fuck, but I do feel bad that so many people (Denise and Cait, especially) have put in so much work to have it come to naught. The band's still proceeding with their Asian Tour, skipping the Philippines due to concerns related to the US State Department's continuing travel advisories warning American tourists against coming here. They chickened out, in other words.
In the meantime, here's to hoping that MTV will be able to bring in a halfway decent foreign act for the Music Summit in December. Sigh. The music scene needs cheering up.
