Country Throwdown Tour Cancels Four Dates
June 1, 2010 at 6:44 AM (PT)
The COUNTRY THROWDOWN TOUR has cancelled four upcoming shows, including JUNE 9th in HOUSTON, JUNE 10th in DALLAS, JUNE 17th in SAN DIEGO and JUNE 18th in PHOENIX. Also, the BAKERSFIELD tour stop, which was set for JUNE 16th, has been moved to JUNE 18th. Tickets from the HOUSTON, DALLAS, SAN DIEGO and PHOENIX shows will be honored at all other COUNTRY THROWDOWN tour dates and refunds are also available at the point of purchase.
Tour Producer KEVIN LYMAN said: “After many attempts to keep these shows, we’re regretfully unable to bring THROWDOWN to these four markets. Low tickets sales and too many shows competing with one another. We are trying to bring a festival style tour with 21 artists, at a reasonable and fair ticket price (average ticket cost $31), but because most markets are currently flooded with shows, we end up cannibalizing one another and someone ends up with lower ticket sales. As a result, we can’t afford to keep the show on the road for ALL of its intended dates. It’s a first year tour and we expected year one to be full of key lessons, so that next year -- and there will be a next year--is even better.”
