Late last week, I learned from a source the Black Crowes’ show scheduled for Sept. 11 would likely move from the Arkansas Music Pavilion to the Walton Arts Center. A Friday afternoon press released release later confirmed the move.
This afternoon came news the show would instead be canceled.
A family emergency was listed as the reason for the cancelation. A statement the band posted on its website indicates other dates were sought, but the band’s schedule prohibited them from finding another date. However, a glance at the band’s website shows seven open dates in September alone, but I digress.
Curiously, the band’s statement also says they canceled a show scheduled for tonight (Sept. 10) in Birmingham, Ala. At the time of this post, they were trying to reschedule that show for Sept. 11 — which until a few hours ago was to be the date for the Fayetteville performance.
Another source told me a more specific, health-related reason for the sudden cancellation that I have yet to confirm (although, because of its sensitive nature, it would be difficult to get information). And sudden the cancelation was — less than an hour and a half after I received my confirmation of a photo pass, I received the cancellation notice.
Still, the timing leaves questions.
Refunds will be issued. Ticket holders should expect a call in the next 36 hours to discuss refund options.
