Rock The Bells Cancels Boston Show, Tickets To Be Refunded
UPDATE: The Rock the Bells show meant for September 10 will no longer be taking place.
After three shows around the nation, the Rock the Bells 2011 Festival Series will have to reschedule its fourth. The Boston date will now be moved from Saturday, September 10 to Saturday, September 24 and it will be held at the Comcast Center. All tickets purchased for the original date will still be honored on the new one.
Guerrilla Union President Chang Weisberg noted that the scheduling conflicts that caused this date change were not something GU could control.
"Due to scheduling conflicts beyond our control we must reschedule this Saturday's Rock The Bells show to Saturday, September 24. We have had three spectacular festival shows this summer in Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York and anticipate finishing the season with another great show.”
Fans will now have to wait a little longer to see Nas, Ms. Lauryn Hill, Cypress Hill, Black Star and many others perform. HipHopDX provided a recap of the Los Angeles show when Rock the Bells launched this year's festival series in San Bernardino, California. Since then, the festival has gone through San Francisco and New York.
UPDATE: Guerrilla Union has cancelled its previously rescheduled Rock the Bells 2011 date in Boston, Massachusetts. All tickets will be refunded at point-of-purchase.
“We are very disappointed that our Boston Rock The Bells Festival stop had to be cancelled this year. Unfortunately, we will not be able to execute the festival to our standards and apologize to the fans who have supported Rock The Bells and quality Hip Hop,” said Guerilla Union’s Chang Weisberg in a statement. "We've had many challenges with this show including numerous scheduling conflicts, bad weather and logistical challenges but hope to come back to Boston with Rock The Bells soon."
