Yo, MauiTime readers. Our new issue hits newsstands tomorrow AM, and I’m (as always, it sadly seems) hustling behind schedule. So here’s the press release straight-up (took the liberty of putting in bold the interesting stuff):
(For Immediate Release – September 29, 2010) — Regrettably, AEG Live has announced the cancellation of Leonard Cohen’s previously scheduled December 4th performance in Honolulu, Hawaii due to prohibitive and insurmountable logistical issues. However, newly added dates have been scheduled in Vancouver, BC and Oakland, CA to round out the artist’s final dates of his current world tour.
Ticketholders for the cancelled December 4th performance in Hawaii will be fully refunded. Additionally, ticketholders for the Hawaiian date will have a private, first-opportunity window to re-purchase tickets to any of the newly announced dates. *Eligible ticket holders for the December 4th performance have been individually alerted by AEG Live via email with details on their ticket exchange window.
Fan Club pre-sales for Vancouver and Oakland dates will run from October 7th (10:00am Pacific) to October 8th (10:00pm Pacific) at www.LeonardCohenFiles.com. Local presales will run on Friday, October 8th (from 10:00am to 10:00pm Pacific). The public on-sale for the Vancouver performance is Saturday, October 9th at 10AM. The public on-sale for both Oakland performances is Sunday, October 10th at 10AM.
