“Tonight’s artist refused to adhere to our safety and security guidelines and would not enter the building,” House of Blues said in a statement. “Unfortunately, tonight’s show is canceled.”

Fans took to the venue’s Facebook page, complaining to either HoB or Johnson of travel time and gas and hotel expenses.  Melonie Cannon, a member of the band, also commented, saying “no one in our band or crew carried a gun in that building … FYI,” adding “We know where guns belong and where they don’t.”

An email to Johnson’s spokeswoman was not returned at press time.
