After the awkward interview he did with the CBC’s “Q”, Canadian fans booed him when he and his band opened up for Willie Nelson on Thursday. Audience members took exception to the fact that Billy called Canadians “mashed potatoes without the gravy” in regards to their lack of enthusiasm at shows.
Billy tried to explain the comment was directed at the shows host, but fans didn’t buy it. Consequently, Billy’s Boxmasters have announced that they’re cancelling the Canadian leg of their tour.
A sad announcement for Canadian fans. Now they’ll never have a chance to pelt Billy with shoes, water bottles or any other heavy, blunt object. Who are they going to throw their loose change at now?
