Coke Arrest + Disney = No Tour

7/21/2008 7:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Steven PageYou would think the band name alone would have made the Barenaked Ladies too hot for Disney -- but a cocaine arrest sealed the deal.

The popular band has pulled out of the Disney Music Block Party planned for late August in Long Island. Their manager announced on the band's site, "Members of the band completely support Steven Page, but we don't want to put Disney in an awkward position before issues involving Steven's arrest are resolved."

Steven Page, lead singer of the Barenaked Ladies, was arrested on July 11 for allegedly possessing cocaine.

Talk about pathetic reporting, this was announced on BNL's site over 4 days ago, also it was already in the regular news cycle over the weekend...I thought TMZ specialized in the latest news, ran out of things to say so you had to recycle old news?

He's brought shame to many Canadians. You would think a grown man would make better choices and/or judgements. His career and his music group is pretty much over. They'll never let him in to any country that bars people with criminal records.

It just bugs the hell out of me when "stars" like him don't face up their bad actions. They believe they're above the law just because they're celebrities. Well...guess what? You're NOT!

ROFLMAO at bruce!!!
His career is over? Are you serious?
Wow... how on earth have varied members of the Stones, Beatles, Van Halen, etc managed to keep going after getting popped for various drug charges? Add to that, please explain how people like 50 Cent, who is an ADMITTED former drug dealer, manage to maintain entertainment careers :)
I am one Canadian who is NOT ashamed of Steven; if I can forgive my fellow Canucks for asininely voting in the Conservative party, I sure as hell can forgive a singer for making a mistake and doing drugs.

Boy you guys lack compassion! Do you not believe that sometimes people need help and that they have a problem? Sad that you are so quick to judge, maybe you should look at the skeletons in your closets.

Just noticed the no tour headline? They pulled out of 1 event all other dates they had scheduled are proceeding as planned typical faulty reporting.
