Howard Stern sidekick Artie Lange has cancelled a upcoming show at a Clear Channel location.
This got me to thinking: Why on earth are all artists not boycotting Clear Channel? Answer: because Clear Channel owns all the major concert venues!
Howard Stern says he is looking into starting his own group of alternative concert venues.Artie talked about Chris Rock telling him that Clear Channel was funneling tickets to his shows to scalpers who were selling them for $400 eachagainst Chris Rock’s wishes. No idea if this is true, but based on Clear Channel’s behavior I wouldn’t put it past them.
At this point I’m not planning on ATTENDING any shows at a Clear Channel venue. If you’re a fan of Howard’s, or a fan of freedom of speech then you should boycott Clear Channel as well.
Here is a list of which venues to avoid: http://cc.com/venues_list.html
