The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences has officially pulled Hedley from the line-up of performers at next month’s Juno Awards. Over the last few days allegations of sexual misconduct have surfaced about the band.
After careful consideration of the situation and in discussions with the band, CARAS and Hedley have decided that the band will not be performing at the 2018 JUNO Awards.

Hedley released a statement on it’s Facebook page praising “the bravery of those who have come forward with their own stories” but at the same time saying “The recent allegations against us posted on social media are simply unsubstantiated and have not been validated.”
Hedley’s Cageless tour continues in Moose Jaw tonight and Brandon tomorrow. The tour wraps up in Kelowna on March 23rd, one day before the Juno Awards.
