East Coast fans may not get the opportunity to wave their hands in the air like they just don’t care during the 2013 Rock the Bells festival.
The annual concert, featuring hip-hop acts of different styles and generations, was scheduled to visit Washington, D.C. and New York next month; however, promoters said the stops were cancelled due to low-ticket sales.
RTB founder Chang Weisberg wrote: ““First and foremost, it is with great sadness and disappointment that we must cancel the Washington, DC and New York City Rock the Bells dates due to lack of ticket sales. I, along with our staff, the artists, and all of the sponsors, media partners, local promoters, and radio stations involved are thankful for our supporters and the fans that planned on attending. It’s extremely unfortunate that we can’t complete the last half of the 10th Anniversary Rock the Bells tour. We did everything in our power to save the show. Unfortunately, the financial loss would have been devastating. This festival has been ten years in the making. I am truly sorry we could not produce the show for all the fans who did buy their ticket in support of.”
Refunds are expected to be distributed to those who had already purchased tickets.
