Neil Diamond cancels Wellington show
Neil Diamond's upcoming Wellington concert has been cancelled due to the lack of a suitable indoor venue, promoters say. [Rumor has it that it was actually due to poor sales.]

Diamond was to perform in Wellington on March 4.

A statement released by the event's promoters cited "unforeseen production and logistical challenges associated with staging Neil Diamond's full show outdoors" as the reason for the cancellation.

Online tickets will be automatically refunded. Tickets bought over the counter can be refunded at the point of purchase.

Diamond will still perform at Auckland's Vector Arena on February 26 and 28. New allocations of tickets have been released for both shows.

What do you think is "unforeseen production and logistical blaa blaa outdoor blaa blaa..." a good reason to cancel a show that was always going to be outside?

Until next time keep rockin'

  1. Haha it was just poor sales!

  2. "unforeseen production and logistical challenges" = "we didn't think sales would be so crappy and how do we make $ now?"

  3. Maybe his audience has died off? He was "Gleed" and even that didn't work might have to team up with Justin Bieber!


Let us know what you think.
