The Used Banned From Canada For Ten Years

Posted by: Dre Okorley (06/25/12)
The Used have been banned from performing in Canada for ten years due to Bert McCracken's criminal record.
Quote from Bert"They won’t let me in. They said not for 10 years. It’s weird, they’re like, ’You need to rehabilitate these crimes before you come back to Canada.’ I’m like, ’What does that mean? When I say criminal record, I’m talking teensy, eensy misdemeanors they still have on my record from, like, 2001 and 2003 - trespassing.”

I mean, technically they're not banned. They can get a different singer for Canadian tours, right?

Can't he be packed away in some box with the equipment? I'm not sure how extensive these border checks are.

That's pathetic. I feel bad that the Canadian Used fans have to suffer for such a terrible reason.
