SLAVES Kicked Off Warped Tour for Jonny Craig’s Behavior

by | Jul 20, 2015

This shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise — Slaves got kicked off Warped Tour over the weekend. Apparently Jonny Craig’s drunken behavior got too out of hand. 

Just look at this flyer that the tour issued, where they had to have a town hall meeting to vote whether the band should stay on the summer trek or be let go. The stipulations give insight into Jonny’s behavior, even demanding that he go to a meeting on sexual harassment and bullying. That, and they wanted him to make a public apology about harassing one of the crew members.


Of course you know this isn’t the first time Craig has been kicked off a tour. A few years ago he was kicked off the All Stars Tour. But apparently the band has hopes that they’ll be able to hop on the remaining dates of the run, at least with the following tweet:

“Driving through Denver tonight going to stop by @allstarstour to watch @DGDtheband – maybe we will just stay on the tour!!! 😋”
