‘Devil Worshippers’ SEPULTURA Are Banned From Playing In Lebanon


Lebanese authorities have banned SEPULTURA from performing in the country, accusing the Brazilian band of “insulting Christianity” and being “devil worshippers,” Albawaba reports.

Concert promoter Skull Session announced on Friday (April 19) that authorities refused to process the bandmembers’ visas, forcing them to cancel planned gig in Beirut’s Hamra district on April 28.

Skull Session told The New Arab that they had not been allowed to see the group’s “ban order” but had been given information by officers who had seen the document.

Skull Session was quoted as saying:

“Basically, what we learned is that they are considered devil worshipers, that they have disrespected Christianity, and that they have performed in Israel. All of which are, of course, not true.”
