Pitbull Joins Cypress Hill, Alpha Phi Alpha & others in Boycotting Arizona


Earlier this week Cypress Hill pulled out of a show in Phoenix and agreed not to hit up the other two cities.. Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity cancelled their convention costing over 300 thousand bucks in cancelation fees and re-routed flights to nearby Las Vegas.. The latest high profile artist to step up to the plate is Pitbull.. he said enough is enough..and is pulling out..Here’s his take on things


LOS ANGELES (May 13, 2010)… Top global hitmaker, Pitbull, announced this afternoon via Twitter and his website (www.PlanetPit.com) his decision to cancel the May 31 date of his “Mr. Worldwide’s Carnaval” tour in Phoenix, AZ in protest of the recent passing of the state’s controversial  SB1070 legislation.  In his heartfelt Tweet, he stated, “I am canceling my concert in Phoenix on May 31. How is the country we enjoy and love bcuz of its human rights, freedom, opportunity and that has been built by immigrants, now start 2 deny them? It is contradicting 2 everything the USA stands 4.” Pitbull joins other top artists, politicians, community leaders and citizens in expressing their disapproval of the new law.

Other dates on the AEG Live promoted “Mr. Worldwide’s Carnaval” tour will continue as scheduled. The tour will kick off on May 25 at the 1stBank Center in Denver and will continue through June 28 with a final show at the Milwaukee Summerfest.
