Tales from the road (part 13)

If Private Sector thought their fortunes would change in a long awaited home coming to Canadian audiences they better think again. The first of two shows at the Grand Passaglia in Spuzzem B.C. had to be cancelled due to a riot that erupted before the band even hit the stage. The angry mob discovered, last Sunday's kitten giveaway would not be repeated and nearly tore the place apart with chants of "Here Kitty, Kitty!!!!!!".

Sector had offered up the infant felines as a gesture of good faith to the Colorado crowd in Yuma, after a near disastrous U.S. leg of the tour.

In turn the second show was cancelled due to violent protests by the local Animal shelter and members of P.E.T.A. who vehemently opposed the tossing of the kittens that took place in the mosh pit at Sunday's show.

The band tried to appease the group by offering miniature dolls on drum sets, but to no avail.

Private Sector move on to Maple Ridge for a 3 day music festival this weekend.
