Barenaked Ladies have announced that they are canceling their appearance at a Walt Disney charity show in New York this summer following the recent arrest of their lead singer on drug charges.

The band, who are currently promoting a new children's album, said in a statement on its website today (July 18) that they don't want to put Disney "in an awkward position" now that frontman Steven Page has been arrested for alleged cocaine possession.

“Members of the band completely support Steven Page,” said band manager Terry McBride in the statement, “but we don’t want to put Disney in an awkward position before issues involving Steven’s arrest are resolved.”

Page said that he plans to contest the charges, as previously reported.
