I'm kinda liking the idea of Live nation and Ticketmaster dying a miserable death. They suck. They ruined live concerts and have been for almost 30 years now.

This is a new chance for the music industry and not the death of it.

 

And those f**king assholes at Livenation charged me 3x what it actually cost to ship the ticket and a VERY large premium for using my credit card, which they surely won't refund (though they should refund EVERYTHING).

So the bastards still make money off of this even if they refund the cost of the ticket that's printed on the ticket.

OFFICIAL UPDATE FROM GUNS on Facebook, MAY 11th 2020 - EU SUMMER TOUR WILL NOT BE HAPPENING GN’R Fam: Sadly, the upcoming European tour will not be happening. Things are changing daily and w

Yeah - poor GN’R. Hard to be the big rockstars who have made hundreds of millions of dollars over the last four years and might not get away with making another hundred million this year. Don’t worry

150% in concert cash, eh? Sounds great until a year from now when Ticketmaster adds the "50% Concert Cash Processing Fee" to any orders purchased via concert cash.

Ok. I was thinking 14 days, so next Wednesday it will start. I'll sort it tomorrow. 14 people involved. I'll randomly draw everyone one of those 14 days....see who gets the correct day! 

Probably no prizes or entrance fee (I can't think of a way to organise that properly really)..... it will just be for fun.

I have ticket for that show, still no confirmation of postponed or cancelled. Just want my money back done with this dumbshits.

They announced the postponement on social media.

I've had emails from promoters saying dates are postponed.

I'd suggest checking the junk folder, then either contacting the promoter if they're dragging their heels and if you really need the money then a chargeback should be possible.

They announced "next steps" so this is not confirmation of anything. They could cancel a show, postpone others..etc.

I have a physical ticket and I'm not in Portugal at the moment, so not sure how I'm gonna get my refund.

Ticketmaster Italy offering a voucher instead of a refund. Not much use if I'm coming from outside Italy

I'd do a chargeback via the bank. Fuck Ticketmaster- they'll do anything to wriggle out of a refund.

Have you looked into chargebacks too? Best thing to do I think given the current situation and the lack of contact from anyone about anything.

They should cancel the US tour already the ticket sales are atrocious anyway.

Only saving grace for the band is that they did eventually cancel... but fuck they left it a long time and there has been some unnecessary damage to their reputation.

Seemed like they just put their hands in the air and said "It's out of our control". Just like they can put out FB messages saying video content is coming, they can do the same saying "We are currently trying to figure out touring plans, hold tight". Anyway... it's done with, we just have to wait on refunds now...

Just to show how screwed up Ticketbastard is right now - Sammy Hagar cancelled his North American tour yesterday.  But, TM is still selling tix to the show.  WTF?!

 

When GNR cancels or postpones, it will be a mess trying to get money back.

Sammy Hagar said that Live Nation/Ticketmaster will inform soon.

I'm in the same boat with Ticketmaster Germany, I was going to be coming from the UK.

No doubt the credit on the account will expire before new GNR shows are announced.

Good to see that the piss poor handling of this is actually getting some media attention. 

Everything is always "out of the band's control" isn't it? Yet other bands seem to manage to handle it so much better. 

Let's see what happens when people try to get refunds.....and how long it takes them to announce rescheduled dates. Worth pointing out that every other band has already done this. I'd bet we don't hear anything until Christmas.
