Cradle Of Filth banned from China

And Finally Artist News

Cradle Of Filth

I don’t know, first Cradle Of Filth frontman Dani Filth was denied his rightful status as ‘the best thing in Suffolk’, and now his whole band’s been banned from China. The good news for Chinese fans though (possibly), is that they have moved an upcoming show in Shang Hai to Hong Kong (where the ban doesn’t apply).

In a statement the band said: “Unfortunately at this time the cultural section of the Chinese government have decided that Cradle Of Filth are unsuitable to play in Mainland China and so we are currently banned from playing there. Therefore the show on Tue 30 Apr in Shang Hai, China has had to be moved to Hong Kong. The new venue is Kowloonbay International Trade & Exhibition Centre (KITEC) in Hong Kong on 30 Apr 2013”.
