Simsbury Meadows Show Cancelled/Moved?

Got the email notification this weekend that the Simsbury Meadows show in CT has not only been cancelled but moved an hour away.

Anyone hear of a reason for this? Just a bit disappointing that moving a show is do with what seems little regard for the people who have bought tickets and made arrangements to attend.

And on top of it at the new location the tickets are more expensive.

Like a said, disappointing.

Hmm.. the tickets were actually like $3 cheaper for me.. the Simsbury venue was 10,000 capacity.. the new location is about 2,000 .. I'm thinking it may have to do with ticket sales but that's only my speculation. I'm still waiting for Crowdsurge/Songkick to email me.. I'm not very good at patience but I'm more excited to see them in a small indoor venue.. so I'm thankful for the change.

Emails have been sent to all those who purchased tickets to the Simsbury show with info and instructions on how to obtain tickets for the new venue or request a refund. Those who purchased through Songkick during our fan pre-sale and received early entry will still have the opportunity for early entry at the new venue. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and are working our hardest to ensure that everyone who had already purchased tickets is re-seated in a comparable location in this new, intimate venue. Thank you for your understanding.

We are in the same situation as Michelle. Bought tickets when the announcement was made on Saturday though haven't bought the tickets through songkick yet. Might just get one to keep the possibility of ee. We've been in touch with the booking company but they won't refund or honor ee for those of us that mistakenly bought through them.

hi abbey
yes i wondered the same exact thing. i also bought immediately via the new venues website, not a day later via the avett brothers website link at 5pm. is there a differnece? I dont know if i had EE with my first presale ticket, but if there was a chance to get EE on this new onsale, i would hope i was eligable.

Yeah, I jumped the gun at the first announcement and grabbed new (GA) tickets from Ticketfly. After I found out about Songkick giving those of us who had decent presale seats first crack at the new venue, I decided to go for loge. Now I have two GA tickets that I need to unload. I really thought this would sell out immediately, but nothing is happening and I am worried I won't be able to sell the extra pair. I read that Ticketmaster would start selling today, but that hasn't happened yet. They need to move faster on getting the public sale going...the show is only like 2 weeks away! I'm just so confused how a band that filled Simsbury last year and MSG a couple months ago isn't selling out a tiny venue of only 2000 cap.
