AOR Community ‘In Turmoil’ As Rockfest 2009 Is Cancelled
In what will be seen as a major blow to the AOR community, Rockfest 2009 has been cancelled.
This was due to happen on November 21 at Dudley JB’s. And with a bill featuring Jimi Jamison, Lillian Axe, Stage Dolls, Dare, Ted Poley and Mitch Malloy, you’d have thought ticket sales for the 1,000-capacity venue would have been strong. Alas, that’s not the case.
The promoter, in announcing the cancellation, claimed that with the poor ticket sales so far he stood to lose £30,000.
However, all is not lost. A smaller event will now happen on the same day, headlined by Dare. Full refunds are being offered to Rockfest 2009 ticket holders. However, if you want to hold on to yours and go to the Dare gig, you will get a partial refund.
