I almost went to one of these shows, it's a very small biker,hippy, college kid place on the strip in Carbondale, Ill.
Todd has played bigger places in town before........ maybe not now.....

I still love his work....



CARBONDALE - A local bar played host to a popular folk singer this weekend, but the star lost some of his Southern Illinois fan base when he ditched the concert half way through the show.

Todd Snider, alternative country singer and songwriter, played two shows at PK's in Carbondale this weekend, but reportedly left the establishment about 50 minutes into his contracted 90-minute show Monday evening, disappointing bar managers and some 150 fans who paid for tickets.

Ely Lane, manager at PK's, said there were no problems during Snider's Sunday night show, but the singer "felt disturbed by the atmosphere" during Monday's event, leaving the bar at the concert's midpoint.

"We believed he was taking a set break, and he literally scurried on off to his vehicle; he just ran out down the alley," Lane said. "It hurt a lot of people's feelings that he would act like that, and I know he upset and lost a lot of fans last night."

Lane said he was working with Snider's record label to get full refunds for everyone who purchased tickets to the show, but he didn't quite understand why Snider was upset to the point that he would leave.

There was a report that Snider felt a woman in the crowd was too close to him during the performance, he said, and fans repeatedly asked him to "Tell a story," which he refused.

"We're sorry Mr. Snider can't handle PK's," Lane said.

Curtis Conley, promoter for PK's, said he was in contact with Snider's management Tuesday and that managers were being very good to him given the circumstances.

"It just wasn't working for him," Conley said. "It came completely out of left field."

PK's is likely the smallest venue Snider has played in years, Conley said, and the singer seemed anti-social during his visit.

Steve Hoiberg, one of Snider's managers, said he preferred not to comment on the situation Tuesday.

I hope he's not using again.....not that this means he is but he has had his problems with substance in the past. I love Todd, have met him a few times and he's always been nothing but down to earth and completely respectful. Wonderful guy, but he is more accustomed to playing larger places at this point and this really doesn't seem like him.

Hope he's okay.

I've had a few in the place years ago........but that quote sums it it up pretty good...


Never have seen him , but always seems like a nice guy on boots & video....

If you read the reply's from the link, there was a guy that talked of 1 crazy girl that seemed a little to out there & some that kept requesting songs , which they say he hates....

He was to open for John Prine in NYC Tuesday the last I checked his site...

Hope all is well with him..

Todd is a tremendous talent. I've seen him a number of times in the last couple of years and he always puts on a great show. I even had a chance to have a short chat with him after a show last year. He seems like a genuinely good dude. He has struggled with anxiety, depression, and addiction over the years and I hope Monday's situation wasn't related to any of that stuff, especially the latter. Could be he just got bugged out and had to scram.
Either way, I hope this story doesn't keep folks from checking out his music or live show. Todd is great.

i heard Jerry Jeff walker hated people telling him what to play, and once he dealt with it by pulling out his pecker, and pissing in a flower pot near the stage

**UPDATE**


CARBONDALE - Refunds will be available to those who purchased tickets to a performance by folk singer Todd Snider Monday evening at PK's in Carbondale.

Singer and songwriter Snider left the sold-out performance halfway through the show Monday evening, disappointing about 150 fans who paid $25 apiece for tickets.

PK's promoter Curtis Conley said Wednesday that Snider's touring company agreed to pay a $3,700 refund for the tickets, or a refund for about 148 tickets at full price.

Anyone who was at the show can get a refund of $25 if they still have their ticket stubs from the event, Conley said, or if they turned in their contact information to the bar manager after the show ended Monday.

Although the company has agreed to pay the refunds, he said, the money won't come immediately.

"It's not going to happen overnight," Conley said. "We're just telling people to be a little patient."

PK's is referring people to their email account if they want to request a refund for tickets, he said.

Conley said he is still in negotiations about money paid for Snider's expenses for the performance and no ticket refunds will be paid until the dispute is settled.

"Conley said he is still in negotiations about money paid for Snider's expenses for the performance and no ticket refunds will be paid until the dispute is settled."

That is BS. In other words, we ain't paying. The club's contract problems are not the patron's problems. If fans paid by credit card, they should dispute the charge.

Kinda what I thought too...... You have to have your stub, got on a list at the end of the night or your card #......
I bet they figure only a hand full will have stubs left and or are to pissed to deal with it...

This is the only name act to perform in the place that I can remember...... Shawn Colvin probly played there when she started out , the place has been there since the 60's or early 70's.... Just local blues & punk bands....
I couldn't believe they could pack 150 in the place....LOL.... that would freak me out ....

Weird. I just saw him last week at a pretty small venue in Cincinnati, and he seemed fine. Hope he's OK.
