It doesn't say postponed shows, it says cancelled. I'd get a refund and repurchase if they come back to town

The email from Ticketmaster says "Hello, this is Ticketmaster Customer Service with an important alert for your upcoming event. WHITE STRIPES scheduled at KIVA AUDITORIUM on THURSADAY SEPTEMBER 13, 2007 , at 7:30 PM, has been postponed. The new date is to be announced." When I called and inquired they said tickets would be honored for the rescheduled show, but with no idea when that would be (and just not trusting that the Ticketmaster agent who told me that has the right information), I think you're probably right.

I'm cashing in and taking my chances. Three tickets is a lot of moolah.

We have 4 tickets.

I emailed the site thru the Customer Service section yesterday, and they responded this morning:

Thank you for contacting us regarding the White Stripes Tour cancellation. At this time, we have not received official word from the promoter regarding the cancellation of all remaining dates of the tour. When we receive confirmation that the events have officially been cancelled, and that refunds will be issued, we will post the information immediately on our website. We are currently working with the promoter to obtain this information.

In the meantime, they still have our money

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.
See Bono's American Wife's post. The Whole tour for the remainder of the year is off...unless thats changed?

I guess thats probably going to rule them out of the Big Day out and an Australian tour in jan/feb 2008

Hope Meg gets well soon...........

Would any one really be dissapointed if they toured without Meg? Jack is the talent in the band and Meg is just a mediocre drummer. I would be pretty statisfied if Jack showed up with another drummer who was better than Meg.

I can't imagine a Meg-less Stripes at all. She might not be the most technically gifted, but she's certainly got a style all her own, and is a real presence on stage. I highly doubt another drummer could duplicate that spark and chemistry she has with Jack.

The cancellation really sucks on all levels. I hope Meg gets better, and I also hope everyone gets to see them at some point in the near future.
