My show was scheduled for tomorrow night and has been postponed.

It was originally scheduled for October, moved up to September, and now postponed with no new date announced. It means getting a refund and hoping I get tickets to the rescheduled event whenever that is.

I now hate the White Stripes.

[sort of]


Weird thing is, my friend kept forgetting about the show and I had a weird feeling about it, too, and we both realized that neither of us ever actually saw us at that theatre at a White Stripes show tomorrow night.

Oh, And I guess it would have helped if I'd read the previous posts before coming in just to post my rant.

Sorry.

The email from Ticketmaster just mentioned my show, not the whole tour, which their website says has been cancelled due to Meg's anxiety.

Okay, so now I feel better about my situation but bad for Meg.

And I won't hate them anymore.

But I'm still mad that almost no one interesting comes to Abq and the one interesting show this year has now been cancelled.

So according to the Stripes site, the rest of the west has been cancelled. Though the 21st in Berkeley isn't listed, I'm guessing that will be affected also.

It sounds like Meg has some flying issues, but they've been touring for years. And it seems to me, if this is not the whole truth, that Jack would have taken the fall and not pin it all on Meg

Oh well, hopefully this isn't the end of them touring.

Well that just sucks. I was so looking forward to it.

I wonder if Ticketbastard will refund the full amount, including their convenience fees

Hope Meg is okay...

Poor Meg

And fyi, you can go from being perfectly cool with flying to not being cool with it at all. Happens all the time.

I asked Ticketmaster if original tickets would be honored for the rescheduled show and they said yes. But if nothing's going to happen this year, I guess I should get a refund and try again for tickets when they're rescheduled. Are any of you going to hold on to your tickets?

If fear of flying is the reason and was a known problem, they should have organized a tour using a bus. But maybe she had a recent bad experience which triggered it all over again or something.

It's hard for me to relate to since I'm so comfortable flying (except for the airport hassles and delays, which have been worse than ever the last few weeks and makes me not want to travel, too).

I'm still annoyed and disappointed. Because it's all about ME, lol.

We haven't received any notification yet from Ticketbastard. We'll be contacting them soon enough

My friend had several floor tix for next weeks show. He said he heard about the cancellation on KROQ this morning.

That sucks for poor Meg. I'm sure she only did what she absolutely had to do.

Yes. So far looks like the European tour is still on.

Is everyone going to turn in your tickets for a refund or hold on to them for the rescheduled shows? Ticketmaster only gives you like a week to request a refund.
