Ever since Billy Bob Thorton insulted Canada on a Canadian radio show, the Canucks have had it in for him. So much so, that Billy and his band, The Boxmasters, have decided to cancel the concert tour. I for one, didn’t even know he was on tour. Seriously.
Billy Bob Thornton’s band has canceled the rest of its Canadian tour after the actor compared the country’s fans to mashed potatoes with no gravy in a testy interview that caused a sensation online.
The Boxmasters opened for Willie Nelson on Thursday in Toronto, where they reportedly were booed and met with catcalls of “Here comes the gravy.”
A note posted on Nelson’s Web site Friday said the Boxmasters were canceling the rest of their Canadian dates “due to one band member and several of the crew having the flu.”
