Wilmington, NC Date Of 2017 Vans Warped Tour Cancelled

The July 4 Wilmington, NC date of the 2017 Vans Warped Tour has been cancelled. You can see what organizers had to say about that below.

Official Statement:

“To all our fans – it is never easy to do this, but due to circumstances beyond our control we have been forced to cancel the 7.04 Wilmington, NC show.

From the Vans Warped Tour team, the bands, and all of our sponsors, we are truly sorry that this had to happen. We were completely blind-sided by the city of Wilmington, NC and have tried to work through everything as fast as we could.

We were working with HUKA Entertainment as our partner and the officials of the city of Wilmington, NC decided to not enter into a contractual agreement with Huka Production, LLC of North Carolina; instead the city pulled the permits that would allow us to have the show. This decision was based on a few concerns that included the venue’s ability to meet the logistical challenge of our tour, as nothing of that large of a scale has been done at the sports complex before. Ultimately the decision of the city resulted in the Vans Warped Tour being tied up and has left us unable to carry out the show.

“It is unfortunate we are unable to hold the Warped Tour at Legion Stadium as we had worked for months to try and make it happen. However, events held at city facilities must be hosted by groups with the ability to provide safety for concert goers as well as financial viability for ticket buyers. We hope we can host similar events here in the future.” – Malissa Talbert, Wilmington Communications Manager

KISS Cancel Manchester, UK Show Following Recent Terror Attack

KISS have cancelled their Manchester, UK show, following the terrorist attack that took place during an Ariana Grande concert in the city. The band commented:

“Following the tragic events in Manchester and the temporary closure of the Manchester Arena the scheduled concert of KISS’ KISSWORLDTour on the 30 May 2017 has been cancelled.

“We are heartbroken by the atrocity committed against the innocent victims of Manchester. We sadly will not be able to play Manchester Arena on the 30th May. We have always looked forward to these shows and our local fans, but in light of recent events a cancelled rock show seems of such little consequence. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of those affected and all the people of Manchester at this difficult time. We are with you and you are in our prayers.

Refunds for the 30 May Manchester Arena concert will be granted to all ticketholders at the point of purchase”
