Sammy Hagar’s “High Tide Beach Party & Car Show” has been cancelled. That event was supposed to be held in Huntington Beach, CA on September 28-29. State Parks superintendent Kevin Pearsall told ocregister.com that the festival was scrapped due to its production company Freeze Management failing to pay fees, including some related to public safety. Hagar said he was “surprised and very disappointed to learn of the cancelation” and “more than anything” he was “sorry to inconvenience the fans.” Festival organizers also commented:

“Due to being denied the necessry permit submitted on 12-16-18 from California State Parks the High Tide Party & Car Show scheduled for September 28 & 29, has been canceled. Unfortunately, there is no possibility to relocate the events. All ticket holders will automatically receive a refund through official ticketing outlets, Front Gate Tickets and GroupOn.”

The Roxodus Music Fest Has Been Cancelled

The Roxodus Music Fest, which was supposed to take place on July 11-14 at the Edenvale Airport in Ontario, Canada, has been cancelled due to bad weather. The event was supposed to feature Aerosmith, Nickelback, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Kid Rock, and more.

Organizers issued the following statement:

“To our Roxodus Family,

During the past couple of months, our venue at Edenvale Airport has battled tremendous rainy weather that has impacted our ability to produce the festival.

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the cancellation of the Roxodus Music Festival this year.

Our team has worked tirelessly to find a solution in which the show can go on but unfortunately, we could not make it happen this year.

Our dream of producing a ‘once in a lifetime experience’ has been put on hold as we take the much-needed time to nurture our venue into a premier landmark in Ontario.

We sincerely thank all of the artists, sponsors, partners, and neighbors who have supported us from the very beginning.

The embrace from our community has meant the world to us and we hope to one day see our dream come to life.

Information about ticket refunds will be released shortly.

Sincerely,
The Roxodus Team”

Static-X Cancel Scranton, PA Show Due To “Misunderstanding” Over Venue’s Stage Size

Static-X have decided to cancel their June 30 concert at Levels in Scranton, PA. The cancellation came as a result of a “misunderstanding” over the venue’s stage size.

The group commented:

“We are very sorry to announce that the Static-X show at Levels in Scranton PA on 6-30-2019 has been cancelled..

This is an isolated incident, resulting from a misunderstanding of the stage size at the venue and its ability to support the production associated with a tour of this size..

We know that the fans in Scranton will be very disappointed, as are we.
However, This USA tour is as much about memorializing Wayne Static, as it is about anything else…

If we are unable to project Waynes face on the big screen for everyone to see and celebrate, it just doesn’t feel right…

Again, we are very sorry that we will be unable to perform as scheduled, and we hope that we will be able to see the fans in the Scranton PA area sometime in the near future.

Tickets will be refunded by the promoter.

Anyone who purchased a meet and greet from the bands will be refunded immediately!

Below is a photo of the tour production, along with a photo of the stage at Levels..

This is nobodies fault, It was an over site / misunderstanding..

Sincerely,
Static-X”

Manowar Say Their Hellfest Performance “Was NOT Cancelled By The Band”

As previously reported, Manowar were supposed to perform a headlining set at Hellfest in Clisson, France on June 21, but the performance got pulled at the last minute. The group have now commented on the situation once again saying the show “was NOT cancelled by the band.”

Here’s Manowar’s new statement:

“Regarding Hellfest cancellation

Our performance at Hellfest scheduled for June 21, 2019 was NOT cancelled by the band; it was cancelled by the Hellfest organizers in their announcement that appeared on their websites.

In the days prior to Hellfest, Switzerland, Greece, and Bulgaria all witnessed our massive production that brought The Kingdom Of Steel to life. We brought it to Hellfest because we came to play.

We fought to give our fans the performance we promised last year at Hellfest, but we will not be pushed around by the Hellfest promoters who chose not to honor their contractual obligations and think they can do wrong to us and to our fans.

Those of you who have requested information regarding ticket refunds should contact the outlet where you purchased your ticket or the Hellfest organizers directly, as they are responsible.

We are currently seeking every legal remedy available to us by law.”

Manowar Cancel Hellfest Performance

Manowar were supposed to perform a headlining set at Hellfest in Clisson, France tonight (June 21), but the band ended up cancelling at the last minute. The group are claiming that the “organizers obstructed [their] efforts to put on the epic show [they] had promised.”

Hellfest organizers issued the following statement:

“Despite a presence on site on June 20, the teams and members of the group decided to leave the site.

The MANOWAR concert, scheduled Friday, June 21, will not take place for reasons beyond our will.

We are sincerely sorry for all MANOWAR fans and more widely for all the fans attending Hellfest.”

The band then responded with this statement:

“Regarding Hellfest (June 21, 2019)

After 18 months of tireless work and preparation we arrived at the Hellfest site yesterday, ready to play today.

The Hellfest organizers obstructed our efforts to put on the epic show we had promised.

Despite what you may hear or read, the Hellfest organizers did have control over the circumstances that prevented our performance.

We always have and always will fight to give our fans 100%.

Our French fans and press know, if MANOWAR come to France and are unable to perform, the fault does not lie with us. Remember the Élysée Montmartre.

We are very sorry that you are being made to suffer. We want you to know that everything we do is for our fans. We stand together with all of you as we always have, and we will not allow anyone to lessen the quality of our shows.

Be very sure the truth will come out!

Thank you to the Greatest Fans In The World for your continued loyalty and support.

MANOWAR”
