Canada Will Charge Extra For Bands To Enter And Play
Well that is good news for Nickelback, Rush and a few others but not so good for everyone else!The Canadian Government is set to make bands pay and additional $425.00 per band member to enter Canada and play! Before this it was only $150 a pop.
This will be bad for the small bars and venues that have National touring acts coming in.
There is some amazing music out there and for people to be able to enjoy it, bands need to travel. The Canadian Government should not put a price on musical art.
I am insulted for all musicians that now have to pay. I am sure some will be able to afford it but for the ‘Little Guys’ this will be tough.
