Earlier today, Good Charlotte unveiled support for their shows across Europe this February, which included a one-off UK date at London’s highly esteemed Alexandra Palace, their first UK headline date since dropping their new album, ‘Generation Rx’.
However, within a matter of hours, Good Charlotte have come forward and announced that they have decided to remove Moose Blood as support for the show, and the tour that would also run across Europe.
The band were originally enlisted for main support duties, with Boston Manor opening up.
You can read Good Charlotte‘s statement announcing Moose Blood being dropped from the tour line-up below.
GC fans in EU&UK, we’ve decided to remove Moose Blood from our recently announced tour, scheduled for this Feb. We apologize for any inconvenience, but we feel we have a commitment to keep to ourselves, our fans & our community. Stay tuned for further support announcements soon

“GC fans in EU&UK, we’ve decided to remove Moose Blood from our recently announced tour, scheduled for this Feb. We apologize for any inconvenience, but we feel we have a commitment to keep to ourselves, our fans & our community. Stay tuned for further support announcements soon.”
The removal of Moose Blood comes off the back of accusations that have been made towards the band earlier this year. More specifically, the accusations state that frontman Eddy Brewerton reportedly stole explicit photographs from a woman’s phone before distributing them to the other members of the band via a private WhatsApp group.
Since the allegations came to light, Moose Blood have been removed from a number of tour and show opportunities. However, the band have stressed that they’re taking legal action.

Boston Manor remain as support for the show, with a replacement support act to be confirmed at a later date.
