Petition Tag - band
Legendary band Tool have announced their first AUS/NZ headlining tour since 2002. But they have skipped the City of Perth to the dismay of many Tool fans living there.
Perth would easily be able to accomodate a Tool gig in the newly opened Perth Arena, and more than likely be able to sell all the tickets.
Get No Limits on Vans Warped 2014!
We know, we know, 2014 is such a long time. But since No Limits has a short-long delay in releasing anything. They think 2014 will be a GREAT time to have everything ready to tour! They would do ANYTHING to get on Vans Warped no matter what the circumstances are! (Except sleeping with people. That's a no-no.)
They love music very much and their dreams are to be on Vans Warped and fill their career choices!
Clark Atlanta University suspended performances of its “Mighty Marching Panthers” Marching Band in light of an ALLEGATION regarding the POSSIBILITY of hazing within its ranks.
While there is no immediate evidence of hazing or any other foul play, the University of its own volition chose to take a thorough, comprehensive look into this serious matter.
The school has stated that when the allegations are proven to be untrue the band can return to its planned schedule of events.
However, by signing this petition you are stating that because no evidence has been found to warrant suspension of performances at this time the band should continue to perform while the investigation is being held until the unlikely event that actual proof is found.
The school district of pickens county is taking the rights of the EHS Band to raise money for the needs of the band.
The district does not get that the band is just as important as the football team, and has won many honors, awards, and titles for the school through competition.
This is from a source that was in the meeting for the board. "The new stadium is set up differently than the old one so the only concessions we could sell would be to the visitors side. We are also not allowed a sales table or face painting. They said it had someting to do with no... portable tables or mobile tables...something along those lines. I am sure the boosters could have something written up to share with others."
"We were told it was up to the principle and I believe they said the athletic director as to how it was all determined. The band boosters came up with the $14000. based on past years in-take."
"I know last year at some games we made several hundred dollars face painting, it seems a shame to lose that money for the band. I am repeating this as accurately as i can remember from tonight's meeting. They had more details and said more would be forthcoming."
Aardman Animation along with Sony Animation & Columbia Pictures are due to launch the film 'The Pirates : Band of Misfits' (other names worldwide) on the 28 March 2012 through until 27 April 2012.
On viewing the current trailers for this film, it would appear that this respected animation studio has lost sight of the damage that it will do by continuing to propagate the stigma that effects many people worldwide who suffer from leprosy.
It is not clever or creative, in the 21st century, to lampoon leprosy sufferers in this way neither it is understandable why these studios and distributors feel that it is acceptable to do so. Are we to see other disabled people portrayed in such a way? Would they create a film in 2012 that highlights the prejudicial language the black communities used to be assailed by at the time this film is set in?
This is an anachronistic film based on a prejudiced, flawed and cruel concept and no one with the smallest amount of compassion should support its box office receipts.
The expectation of this petition is not to ban this film but to hurt the producers in their pockets and seek a public apology for the way in which they have portrayed and humiliated one of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged groups in the world.
The Reading Festival from its origins used to begin with a performance by a local rock band. Latterly, this tradition has fallen away. Reading has a long tradition and association with music as well as hosting one of the Worlds most famous music festivals. A very large proportion of the Festival crowd are from Reading and its environs.
The Quotes are a young, highly dynamic and energetic Reading band who have financed their own album and have a very large following. We would like The Quotes to play Reading Festival 2012 to demonstrate their talent and the rock music talent that Reading continues to generate. Where better to do this than their local Festival!

The NBCA continues to include the Parade March as a compulsory component of the Australian National Band Championships, despite a majority of bands and band members disliking it's inclusion.
The Band Movement has undergone great change in the past 40 years. Bands that used to do nothing but march in parades now present concerts and play a different style of music.
Marching continues to project an image of Bands that is rooted in the 19th century, and has not changed since 1950.
Particularly at the Nationals, bands work hard to perform high quality music to a very high standard, and project an image of bands as an oustanding musical activity.
The Parade simply projects bands as average musical organisations, and undoes the day-to-day work that bands do to promote banding as a contemporary activity.
This proposal does not suggest stopping the parade. Rather, it suggests that those who believe in marching can continue to march. The NBCA should give bands the option to projecting this image, or wanting to move forward with a new image of banding as a MUSICAL rather than MOVEMENT activity.
The Sick Puppies is an amazing band, though they hardly play shows in Canada, if any.
We the Canadian fans should be able to see them live in our own country, instead of having to travel to the U.S. to see them.
Sick Puppies rose to prominence in 2006 when their song "All the Same" was uploaded along with a video to YouTube. The video supported the Free Hugs Campaign which was launched in Sydney, and has since received over 66 million views on the website.
This success followed up with Dressed Up as Life in 2007, which entered the Billboard 200 at number 181. Their third studio album is titled Tri-Polar.
Molotov Jukebox is one of the most wonderful and unique sounding bands out there right now, and after touring the UK for 2 years, I think it's time for them to bring the sound of Gypstep to Canada! (:
Download their amazing single "Laid to Rest" at iTunes now! http://ax.itunes.apple.com/album/laid-to-rest-single/id398571533
'Europe' is a Swedish hard rock band, founded in the outskirts of Stockholm in 1979. It was their third album, The Final Countdown, released in 1986, that was to give the band international success, selling over 20 million albums worldwide with songs such as The Final Countdown, Rock the Night and Carrie.
In 1989 'Europe' released tickets to an Australian tour for their forth album, Out of this World, unfortunately however, they were forced to cancel their tour but have since been quoted in interviews saying they would love to come here for an extensive tour.
Their latest album, Last Look at Eden, is fast becoming widely known and much loved on Australian shores. We would like to show Europe that Australia wants a tour!!
Please support this petition to invite Europe to tour this beautiful country and to show them that after 20+ years Europe still has what it takes to rock Australia!
Mike Krompass and Dave Filice were the best guitar and bass players David Archuleta ever had. Mike has been with David since the beginning, co-wrote 2 songs from David's debut album with him, 2 songs from David's new album The Other Side Of Down, and produced one of the songs as well.
Dave Filice was David's bassist on his summer tour 09 and his Christmas From The Heart Tour 09. Both are great guys and great musicians, and lots of fans have really gotten to know both of them and have almost become friends with them. If they're not in the band for David's next tour, it really won't be the same.
Sign if you agree and want Mike and Dave back in the band! Because Mike and Dave weren't just "part of the band", they were part of the family.
This petition is to show the band how many loyal fans they have in POLAND that would love to see them perform here.
*Please sign and spread the message around on the internet. Thank you.
It has been nearly 26 years since Norwegian band a-ha performed in Australia, and have not released their last album here. Now they're on their farewell tour, and have neglected all us loyal fans!
At the beginning they said they would be performing here, but no dates were announced. So please, sign this petition to bring them back for the last time.
We've got their albums, we've got their dvd's, we love them, and we want them here in Australia again!
A7X came here in 2006 and both old and new fans want them back! They're touring USA this year, and the UK, why not come here too!
Demand Hey Monday to Lake Forest, California!
Hey Monday is an American five-piece power pop/pop punk band from West Palm Beach, Florida, formed in 2008. Their debut album Hold on Tight was released on Oct. 7, 2008.
For two years, the Shenandoah University Buzzin' Dozen Hornet Pep Band has been performing at Shenandoah Hornet Athletic events and other campus occasions (the Grand Marshall Parade of the Apple Blossom Festival, freshman orientation, pep rallies, etc). The band has increased attendance to these events, raised enthusiasm from both players and spectators alike, and performed fun-loving, upbeat music for all to enjoy.
On Thursday, Feb 4, the Pep Band was suspended indefinitely; and their director, graduate student Eric Price, was fired. This occurred after a humorous email from Price to the band was taken out of context and administrators were notified.
Price was not given any sort of warning, nor was he given any written notification of his termination. The band was notified in a email that failed to mention why it (the band) was being suspended.
On September 22nd the associated press published an article outlining the proposed final budget plan for the state of Pennsylvania. This proposed budget among other things calls for the addition of a 6% sales tax to concert and theater tickets.
From The PA Budget Website
"$100 million from lifting the sales tax exemption on admissions costs for theater, dance, concerts and performing arts, as well as museums, historical sites, zoos and parks."
There is a specific singling out of the performance arts in this proposal. Sporting events and other forms of entertainment are not slated to receive any additional taxation in the budget proposal.
This proposal has been confirmed with the Governor's office of public liaison. As of Sept 23rd 2009 the proposal is slated to be on the Governor's desk in to weeks time in bill form for signing.
In an already crippled live performance industry and an era of limited household incomes it is important to act quickly to keep entertainment outlets affordable.
Due to lack of funding, Wake County's All County Band has been officially suspended for the year of 2009.
This petition is asking for YOUR support to bring back 2009's All County band.
Your signature is important!
Boy Kill Boy were an underrated English rock band who from 2004-2008 brought out brilliant and well-received songs such as 'Back Again' and 'Suzie'.
In their time, they recorded two superb albums 'Civilian' and 'Stars and the Sea', both of which didn't have a bad song on it. After their second album, the band fell out with their label Vertigo and later split up.
Maemi was formed in the early year of 2009 by two close friends, Bou and Hide, the two’s names are originally Peter and Ethan, but they prefer stage names in public, cameras, performances and etc. The idea of Maemi was to revolutionize the Japanese Rock and Visual Scene in America; they’ve done a few public shows so far in Phoenix and have also played some shows with local bands around the area. With most audiences unfamiliar with the brand of music they introduced through their performances, the reaction was better than expected.
Maemi comes from the Japanese language, having 3 different meanings but all meaningful.
Ethan (Hide) believes that Maemi is not a band, but a world that Bou and himself had created, to introduce others too that have not seen before or heard. With multiple styles in their minds, Bou came from a heavy metal, rock genre, as Hide came from a more pop, dance, baroque style/ genre. Mixing the multiple styles has created a new opening in their life.
Though Maemi is created by the two, Hide also believes that the only time Maemi ever exist is when they perform or they are together in music. It’s also true that Bou and Hide aren’t the only members, though there are 4 others. The two believe that they are musical guest in their world, but they have not yet been claimed as official members. Bou and Hide both guitarist are the only official members do far.
Maemi is always sure to make those who attend their performances, smile, feel emotion and dance.
Maemi has numerous amounts of covers, which they also perform for cons. Though if requested Tucon will be their first con performance. Their cover list contains the artist such as:
Dir En Grey
Moi Dix Mois
Maximum The Hormone
And many more to come throughout the year
Maemi needs this chance to perform and grow from this performance. Please sign this petition to let Maemi perform at Tucon. They need all the support they can get. I ensure you that all of you anime and j-pop fans would want Maemi to play at Tucon. Still don’t know what kind of music they play, go on to youtube and look up some of the bands.
Music, like any other art form, finds its true meaning through public exposure, and its artists, the musicians, often feel the most validated through their public performances.
'T-Man' Tallan Latz, a 9 year old blues guitar prodigy, is being denied public performances in bars due to his young age. He started the guitar at the age of 4 and in less than 3 years has managed to perform countless times in bars and clubs saving up for college. His virtuosity has earned him to play in the infamous Chicago's House of Blues as well as jam with major names like Jackson Browne and Les Paul.
In the summer of 2008, Carl Latz, Tallan's father, received a letter from the state of Wisconsin informing him that his son could not play his regular venues anymore as a result of an anonymous e-mail sent to state officials complaining that he was violating child labor laws by performing in taverns as a minor.
The law states that no one under the age of 16 can perform in a 'roadhouse, cabaret, dance hall, tavern, night club, or any other similar place', although minors are allowed to drink under the supervision of a parent. So Tallan's dad can buy his 9 year old son a beer, but as soon as he hands him his guitar, it is considered child endangerment.
Let us also note that shortly before this letter was anonymously sent to a state official, Tallan's booking agent received threat letters urging her to stop booking his gigs. Tallan's genius is not only being repressed by laws blindly applied, but also by frustrated people who are wary of seeing a young musician succeed with such ease.
As the youngest blues performer in the world, Tallan's unique talent deserves to be encouraged and recognized by all possible means instead of restricted. If such a law is to be enforced when there is clearly no sign of child abuse, and both the child and his parents are obviously consenting, then that law needs to be changed.
Hanson has been around for more than a decade now, and during those years only so many songs have been released on their albums.
They have plenty of unreleased songs that have leaked onto the internet, and many fans are in search of all of these missing gems that are all but easy to find.
I truly believe that if Hanson released these songs it would benefit them, as well as please their fans.
I would love to support the band by purchasing these songs, but they are not available to be purchased.
In short, this petition is asking 'Hanson' to release those awesome unreleased tunes!
**P.S. this is not part of the petition, but I also believe that the re-release of the demo cd's 'boomerang' and 'mmmbop' would ALSO be awesome. **
Pushplay is an amazing and talented Rock/Pop/Electronica band from Long Island.
They are gaining more fans and support on a daily basis and it would be awesome if they could appear on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in order to be introduced to the world and recruit more people for their already immense fanbase!
Over the last ten years, England fans have had to put up with a lack of atmosphere at their football matches.
This is, in part, due to a band playing the same set of annoying songs (The Great Escape, Self Preservation Society, Ring of Fire) which actually hinders the other fans starting their own 'proper' chants and creating a 'proper' football atmosphere.
John Howard, current prime minister of Australia, is a right-wing, racist, anti-worker bastard. Jarvis Cocker, former lead singer of Pulp and now solo artist, is a left-wing, anti-racist, pro-working class legend.
Jarvis is cool, Howard is not.
It is obvious. Australia needs Howard out and Jarvis in.
As Jarvis Cocker has recently released a solo album — in which he produces such gems of political philosophy as "The free market is perfectly natural, do you think I am some kind of dummy?" — it is obvious a proper tour of Australia is in order.
Australia needs Jarvis! He must tour! Australia doesn't need Howard! Howard must go!

I have created this petition on behalf of my band 'Excessum' and friends of ours 'Not So Naked' who has signed up (through Dave who used to work in the Bicester music shop) to the Youth Battle of the Bands on the 25th of July at The Garth Park.
Recently, Excessum and Not So Naked has had a conflict with Dave (who gathered bands to play for the Battle of the Bands) when he scheduled us to perform on the 27th of July at the Bicester Snooker club. The story behind this is that Dan of the Football Club offered us to play with a 5-band set including a BBQ on the same date; as you may understand we decided to back out of the Snooker Club and accepted Dan's offer as we believed this would be better for us as a band - and to avoid risk of loss of crowd (as The Football Club has more to offer, e.g. 5 Bands (compared to 4), a Summer Special BBQ, and a better atmospher).
Upon making this decision, we received a rather threatening message by Dave through Myspace regarding Battle of the Bands (where Dave confirmed that we were going to participate in): "You can forget playing the Garth thats for certain! and tell dan he is a dead man". This caused an upset for the band as were confirmed by Dave and were really looking forward to perform with other local bands and friends; we were also putting in heavy preparation to perform a good set, not to mention our families were coming down to see us perform our first performance as a band.
I do not know if Dave has forwarded the list of bands and contacts to the Bicester Council (who is responsible for the event taking place), but we do not believe that he should have a say who on should not perform; we understand his anger, but we think that this conflict has nothing to do with this event. Plus, the event date is drawing near and we believe that this is a completely bad move as Dave would have to rush for time to find bands to fill in for the gaps (plus he no longer works in Bicester). This is punishment, not business.
We do not wish to influence any more conflict with Dave or any other venue. We just wish to play music as bands and gain as much enjoyment from that as possble.
Many thanks for your time and support.
Tommy of Excessum
Most people that are regulars on the gig scene and even ones that are not will know, trying to get tickets to see a band / concert these days is mostly down to luck.
This I believe is due to the amount of people buying tickets simply to sell them at huges profits on ebay. The evidence to support this claim can be seen by anyone that goes onto ebay and searches for tickets. I recently seen a £12.50 ticket for one of my favourite bands on ebay selling for £90 (this was the day after i tried myself to get tickets to this gig with no luck).
It is my own opinion, as well as most of the people i have discussed this with, that if ticket sales on ebay are stopped there will be a lot less people buying them simply to sell on, and a lot more chance of genuine giggers being able to purchase them at their true value. Please support this petition and add your signature.
