NME, the BBC and a variety of outlets are reporting this morning that Ryan Adams’ forthcoming tour looks like it’s still happening for now, so if you’re after a refund after hearing about the recent revelations, you probably won’t have much luck – or not yet anyway. NME is reporting: “While it was reported that the upcoming release of album ‘Big Colors’ had been cancelled, his UK and Ireland tour dates (including two nights at London’s Royal Albert Hall) are still currently set to take place.
“Just been contacted about Ryan Adams tickets by the Royal Albert Hall,” wrote one fan on Twitter. “Apparently they are unable to offer refunds as the promoter assures them it is going ahead. So they have zero moral compass, then. I’ll remember that.”
Another received a similar response from the venue after stating that they “did not want to financially support someone like that”. When approached by NME for a response, a spokesman for promoters SJM Concerts said that “at this time the tour is still scheduled to go ahead.”
In an email from vendor site SeeTickets seen by NME, another customer was told: “The event is still going ahead, and therefore in line with our agreed terms and conditions, refunds are not available.”
A spokesman from Royal Albert Hall added: “The venue is being hired by a third party promoter SJM for the Ryan Adams concerts. The promoter has advised us that the concerts are still scheduled to go ahead. We are continuing to monitor this situation very closely.” If the tour does go ahead you imagine the secondary ticket resellers may have a fair few on sale.
