So the show is cancelled....................

Everyone looses except the ticket offices............

They keep the delivery costs and 10% of ticket sales booked through the offices which you pay and is not refundable...

Is this just another scam........ cancel a tour that never was?
You have all the money for ticket sales collecting interest.
What % of people will return there tickets for the refund?

The next concert should be boycotted.

I was just down at the box office in front of the stadium, and they said it was canceled. I am just happy I had not yet bought my ticket.

I`d pay good money not to go to a Sarah Brightman concert. ;) More seriously, yep, this happens all the time and the secret is - never go to the venue again, never buy an album by the artist again, boycott the record label.

It happens pretty often in Russia. They'll give you the promoter's address which is located as far away from civilization as possible, and will return face value of the ticket during a two day window. After then, the ticket is worthless.

If it's possible to pay by credit card, do so. Then if something like this happens, call your bank and tell them to refuse the entire charge. Viola.

She is an ex of Andrew Lloyd Webber. I anticipate a question : Who is Andrew Lloyd Webber?
You ,guys, killing me.

Does her relationship status with Andrew Lloyd Webber somehow merit our high interest in her, or is she perhaps known for her own musical talents ?

I'm sure, her marital status helped her a lot to climb musical career ladder.

Frankly speaking, I 'm not her fan.

I know who ALW is, but is Sarah Brightman famous for doing anything that would merit a stadium concert? I have never heard of her before these posters started appearing around Moscow last month...

Sarah Brightman was first spotted with a girlie group called Hot Gossip whose main activity was to prance around in stockings and suspenders on 'The Kenny Everett Show.'

Then she was married to ALW.

Then she was singing with Cliff Richard!!

Then she was singing with Michael - some mothers do 'av 'em - Crawford!!

She deserves something for enduring such experiences in her short talentless life!!
