last night due to, from their facebook post:

"As always, the safety and security of our guests is our number one priority.
Tonight’s artist refused to adhere to our safety and security guidelines and would not enter the building. Unfortunately, tonight’s show is cancelled."

All social media comments seem to be related to whether he or his band/crew could be/might be armed.

Don't think I've ever seen/heard that happen before.

Several members of Jamey Johnson’s crew responded to the House of Blues statement, attempting to clarify the situation, including Tony TC Coleman, the 62-year-old legendary drummer who toured with B.B. King for many years and who recently joined Jamey Johnson’s band. Coleman said in a statement,

“As a member of Jamey’s band, House of Blues management ‘Live Nation’ was wrong for how they treated the situation. Jamey was ready to give an amazing performance as he has done every night since the year and 3 months I’ve been in his band. I stand with him on this. House of Blues didn’t need to treat us like we were terrorist. They put a medal(sic) detector between Jamey’s busses and the stage entrance and the only people coming in and out of his buses was us. His band and crew and we all have laminated stage identification. We did not come to House of Blues to be treated like we are going to kill the fans. If someone came backstage to harm anybody you better pray there is a Jamey Johnson type individual around.”

Jamey Johnson served 8 years in the United States Marine Corps as a mortarman, and achieved the rank of Corporal before becoming a country music songwriter and performer.

Melonie Cannon, who is a singer and also part of Jamey Johnson’s entourage, also clarified on social media, “No one in our band or crew carried a gun in that building….FYI.”

I would hope the performers are held to the same security measures that the fans are. It sounds like the venue had a security detail to protect the performer.

A bandmember also wrote that Jamey didn't have a gun and that they had already done soundcheck. I think they wanted the metal detector taken down, which it sounds like the band/crew had to go through every time they come in/out toward their bus.

Pretty sure there was a shooting at a some MB club recently, maybe 2 or 3 weeks ago. Id say that had a lot to do with it. But yeah, I mean, let the band go freely, I can't see a roadie/musician with a motive to kill his source of income. Just my two pennies.
