This certainly stinks for Mark McGrath fans.
The musician's planned "Mark McGrath & Friends" '90s nostalgia cruise, which also included Smash Mouth and the Spin Doctors, has been canceled.
According to a statement the cause was "recent events," but McGrath was more specific on his Twitter account.
"[M]y apologies, it's a real bummer," he told one fan. "That recent cruise fiasco really took us down."
To another, he tweeted, "that poop cruise did us no favors."
(The "poop cruise" being, as though any of us could forget, the Carnival Triumph cruise ship that caught fire and then drifted in the Gulf of Mexico for days without electricity or working toilets.)
Yet even without a cruise, the show must go on. McGrath, Sugar Ray and other '90s acts will take part in an upcoming "Under the Sun Tour." Tickets are expected to go on sale in April.
