Buzzfest: Another Ike Casualty [9/30/2008 11:06:00 AM]:
While I wasn't super-keen on seeing most of the bands that were slated to play at this year's edition of the now-venerable Buzzfest
(seen The Offspring
, seen Toadies
, mildly curious about Hawthorne Heights
, could care less about the rest -- Staind
, Papa Roach
, Puddle of Mudd
, 10 Years
, Saving Abel
, & Drive A.
were also on the bill), it does
make me a bit sad to learn from the Live Nation
folks that the whole damn thing -- which was
scheduled for Sunday, October 26th
-- has been cancelled:
Radio Station 94.5 The Buzz (KTBZ) has announced that due to damage from Hurricane Ike to The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, the October 26th concert has been cancelled.
Refunds will be automatically credited to the credit card of those who purchased tickets online via livenation.com or ticketmaster.com. For those who purchased their tickets at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion Box Office or Ticketmaster outlets, refunds will be made at point of purchase.
Damn shame. Much as I enjoy making fun of the CWMP, I do get how many big-time acts they bring to town -- I hope they can get things fixed up there pretty quick, or the string of cancellations may not yet be over...
