Also, they were not the only act that cancelled shows last week and this week. Kings of Leon decided to play and that's great. They made the decision they felt was appropriate for them, their road crew and their fans. Incubus did the same.
I'm not saying fans don't have a right to be upset. I'm sure a lot of people saved up and planned months in advance, tying it into birthday celebrations, anniversaries, maybe even marriage proposals. I'm sure it hurts a lot. But, for all we know, someone in the band or crew may have had a personal connection to one of the victims in the shooting. It may not be as black and white as people think.
Terrible situation no matter how you spin it. I wouldn't hold it against the band though. They did what they felt was right knowing some people would not be happy. That's hard to do
