The Metro Station man was due to play at Vans Warped Tour.

Trace Cyrus has pulled out of the tour's date in Toronto today, saying "Most every time I cross into Canada, border agents treat me like a criminal."

"With the image I have I become an immediate target," he adds.

Real Trace's full message below.

Toronto I deeply apologize but I won't be making it to the Warped Tour date today in Canada. Most every time I cross into Canada, border agents treat me like a criminal. Even though I've never been arrested, had a DUI, or any serious trouble with the law. With the image I have I become an immediate target. One of my last times going there I was put in a room for hours and interrogated and searched till after hours of them finding nothing they finally let me go. I suffer from severe anxiety and panic attacks and the idea of being detained in a room against my will is just something I can't handle mentally right now. I'm embarrassed that I have to cancel this show. I've been around the world playing shows since I was 18 and never have I been treated this way in any other country. My fans in Canada are amazing. I love playing shows there but right now this issue is just stoping me from making it to this show. When u r part of a very famous family it seems they r hoping they find something illegal just so they can make a news story about it and make an example out of me. I hope u guys can be understanding and realize I am deeply sorry and I will be back to Canada in the future to make it up to u. Once again I apologize to my fans, band, and everyone involved in warped tour."
