At least ten clubs and music halls have canceled concerts by Michelle Shocked since she went on an anti-gay tirade during a show in San Francisco on Sunday night. Late Tuesday, her publicist distributed a letter from the singer in which she said she had been misunderstood. During the show, she reportedly warned that a court decision overturning California’s Proposition 8 and thus reinstating gay marriage would bring about the apocalypse. In the open letter, she apologized for not expressing herself as clearly as she should.
