I understand what you are saying, but their dynamic would be lost...

The White Stripes play with a certain amount of innocence and that would be lost with Meg...

Meg is the other Stripe. Without her, it's Jack White solo.

Well I think that Meg, while not the greatest of drummers, has her own unique presence and style and as far as I'm concerned White Stripes aren't White Stripes without her.

Ack. This royally sucks for anyone who had tickets to see the Stripes. I feel so bad for you guys, as I know you were looking forward to it. Hope Meg gets better soon... Anxiety can be just as crippling as physical illness.

And no, Jack couldn't go out on tour without Meg and bill it "The White Stripes". That's crazy. Like Martha said, do that and it's just Jack White solo.

Exactly.


So now I have to wait for Stubhub to officially declare the event canceled (with no possibility of being rescheduled) so I can get my money refunded

I just received a new email that says:

Hello, this is Ticketmaster Customer Service with an important alert for your event. White Stripes , scheduled at Kiva Auditorium on Thursday, September 13, 2007, at 7:30pm, has been cancelled.

Your credit card will automatically be credited the ticket price and convenience charges, and should post to your account within 7 to 10 business days. Please note, the $3.35 per order processing fee and any ticketFast or UPS delivery charges are non-refundable.


So now they're automatically crediting accounts instead of having to return tickets by a certain date in order to get a refund. Which is good ... except that I was returning mine by UPS 2nd day to ensure they didn't get lost. Figured better to lose $12 than $80 or whatever it was. Earlier this summer I returned something to Pottery Barn by Priority Mail. They never received it so without tracking info I'm out the $100 the item cost so that's why I took this route with the tickets. Hopefully I can catch the UPS package before it goes.

I got a similar email as well, except my processing fee was slightly more. Why does the customer always get screwed?

If they'd have hired me as their astrologer this would never have happened. Tickets for most shows went on sale during Mercury retrograde which could have only resulted in confusion (remember the U2 presale anyone? They should have hired me, too. ). But nobody listens to me and Nancy Reagan.

It is just Jack White solo. I realize that, buy would any one actually be dissapointed. Would you feel ripped off for paying full ticket press. Yes, I think I would see U2 without Larry Mullen, as long as somebody could replicate what he does.

The credit for my tickets came through.

I'd so much rather be seeing them than having that credit.
