Red Dragon Cartel – 2 UK gigs cancelled following Spinal Tap type incident

1404831_719606444735868_1024436959_oRegrettably Red Dragon Cartel’s show on Sunday June 8th at Wolverhampton Slade Rooms had to be cancelled following an incident after the band’s London Islington O2 Academy gig on Friday June 6th.

Red Dragon Cartel’s worldwide (excluding USA and Canada) Booking Agent Denise Dale of Metal Music Bookings was confronted in the dressing room in a ‘Spinal Tap’ type of moment by Jake E Lee’s American girlfriend, who stated that she would henceforth be taking over the management of the band, and that Metal Music Bookings would no longer represent Red Dragon Cartel.

Said girlfriend, who is in the UK on a tourist only visa, then proceeded to work at the band’s Nottingham Rescue Rooms show on Saturday June 7th, which caused a serious visa irregularity, in contravention of UK immigration law.

Denise Dale decided to attempt to defuse the situation and travelled to Wolverhampton’s Slade Rooms yesterday afternoon to find, on arrival, that the band and crew were demanding that venue staff ban her from entering. Denise informed them that the show could go ahead as long as said girlfriend was not in the building, but Jake declined this solution and the show was, therefore, cancelled.

Red Dragon Cartel’s Buckley Tivoli gig on Friday June 13th has now been cancelled in the light of the above.
