The reason cited is “unavoidable circumstances”, which is a new one on me. Wonder how many tickets were sold for this gig and if audience fatigue is now beginning to hit some of the more hastily arranged shows?

Tickets are refundable from the point of purchase. All proceeds from the show were supposed to be going to Trocaire’s Earthquake Appeal so it’s odd that there’s no mention about if and how people can just pass the ticket money to that appeal.
