Toby Keith's I Love This Beard and Hat

​Some big name bands are boycotting Arizona over SB 1070? Who needs 'em when you've got such big name acts as Toby Keith, Southern Culture on the Skids and, um, Wang Chung coming to town! 

Dammit, Arizona is screwed.

While it's nice that some bands still decide to play Arizona in spite of controversial SB 1070, the state's live music scene is definitely going to take a hit from those opinionated bands who feel it is in their best interest to leave Arizona off of their tour itineraries. Granted, some of these bands don't regularly play the state, so it's not really pushing it to stay away now, but the sentiment still stings. However, with Lilith Fair and Bamboozle Roadshow putting the kibosh on upcoming summer shows, things are getting a bit out of hand here in The Grand Canyon State.

But we must soldier on, and soldier on we will thanks to shows from Ray Lamontagne, Kaskade, David Allan Coe and Something Corporate. Check out the rest of Arizona's precious few just announced shows after the jump.
