Justin Bieber re-schedules NY State Fair concert

By Amy | August 31st, 2010

Looks like Justin Bieber’s Sunday, 8/29 performance, which was rescheduled for Wednesday, 9/1, will go on Wednesday as planned, much to the relief of everyone who moved their schedules to get back to the State Fair three days later!

From the NY State Fair website:

“The Fair was notified Saturday during the grandstand concert that, due to an illness, Justin Bieber has re-scheduled his Sunday, Aug. 29 concert at the New York State Fair to Wednesday, Sept. 1, at 7pm.

As a result, promoters for Justin Bieber have had to reschedule the Verizon Wireless Arena show in Manchester, New Hampshire, which was scheduled for Wednesday, Sept 1. That show will be moved to Thursday, Dec. 9 in order to accommodate re-schedule the Fair date.

The Fair will honor all tickets issued for Sunday’s show for the new date on Wednesday, Sept. 1. Any ticket that cannot be used should be returned to the point of sale for a refund prior to Wednesday’s show. The refunds will be processed at 10 am Sunday morning.”

BCS predictions already? Not really, but it’s fun to talk about.

By Amy | August 23rd, 2010

With the college year ramping up, it’s only a matter of time before the pennants start flying in earnest. So who are the teams thought to have a chance at next spring’s BCS Championship Game? The Crimson Tide again, perhaps, or the Texas Longhorns? Maybe not.

According to Stewart Mandel of Sports Illustrated, there are plenty of unranked teams with real promise. Arizona State Wildcats could have a good chance this year, thanks to some good transfers and high-calibre players. The UConn Huskies also stand a good chance, as well as the Boston College Eagles, the Purdue Boilermakers and the Navy Midshipmen. Think this will be the year of the underdog? We’d love to hear your opinions over on our Facebook wall!

Kings of Leon coming back to finish the show!

By Amy | August 18th, 2010

Looks like those who experienced Pigeongate are in luck, as the Kings of Leon WILL be rescheduling their ill-fated show from last month! Fans who bought tickets to the July 23rd show at the Verizon Amphitheatre will have free entry to a newly scheduled show on September 25th in St. Louis. Notably, the new show will also also be at Verizon Amphitheatre, so we can only assume there’s been some pigeon-eviction notices served.

If you’re a ticket-holder for that July 23rd show, and you’re not sure what to do, call our customer service number at 1-866-353-5167 for the details on getting in to your free show.
