Yep, bummer. But you could see it comming. Well wishes to Gregg. I'm guesing either Mule or the Crowes will be the Big Announcement on Thursday.

The glass half full perspective is that ABB is still planning on a 12 date August tour and the Beacon in the Fall. Here's hoping.

It sure would be nice if we could get some definitive answers on this whole situation. How long are we going to have to sit on these tickets and wait? I'd almost rather they cancel everything and then re-schedule it when they are actually able to play. That way we can know about planning, etc.

Understand your frustration but think of it from Gregg's perspective; I bet he'd sure like a definaive answer that he will make a full recovery as soon as possible. I am sure the band would like a an answer as soon as possible that Gregg will be ok and also wether or not they will take a massive financial hit.
Frustrating, but keep it in perspective.

Damn, I figured they were gonna try to hang on to this gig. That's gotta hurt for both the exposure to new fans and the dollars.

Amen. I'm sure Gregg wishes that he was going to be facing the crowd at Bonnaroo instead of medical treatment, also, but he's absolutely doing the right thing in taking care of his health. We are talking about a medical condition that requires long-term treatment not a 30 day script for antibiotics. My understanding is that often there are no clear answers to questions about scope of treatment - it's on an individual by individual basis. As much as Gregg tours with both ABB and his own band I'm guessing he's itching to get at it but it's good that he's doing the smart thing in taking care of his health. And I can totally understand the decision to carry on with Wanee, an ABB sanctioned event, and cancel other appearances. To me it would not be an ABB appearance without Gregg. Bonnaroo still has an amazing line-up going for it.

I hope that if they decide to cancel until March that they allow those who want to hold onto their original tickets to do so. When you return tickets to ticketmaster for refund, they keep all the added fees. I learned this when I recently returned Van Halen tickets for refund. That's like $15.00 per ticket for people with the golden circle tickets. Then when they go back on sale for the next run you will pay the fees all over again. That is getting hit twice with fees for each show! For people like Dougrhon who bought quite a few tickets it would be a nice little hit financially. I'm gonna go to the shows if they come anyway so they might as well let those who want to keep their seats keep them for the next run.

Pete, I don't know about the Van Halen situation, but here for a refund, all they will charge is the $3.15 order processing charge and any shipping, if applicable.

I posted the email I rec'd from TM cust svc following my inquiry in the Beacon Shows Canceled thread. I know some have canceled and maybe they can confirm.

What about those poor bastards that bought them through a broker or a scalper? That's gotta hurt.

Pete, I can confirm what Brock said about canceling Beacon tickets. I received a refund (minus the $3.15 processing fee) after sending Ticketmaster an email. There were no shipping fees because it was one of my presale tickets.

From my persepective my wife somehow wound up with 4 tickets for opening night that she didn't think she ordered...and they were not great seats, so I returned them and cut our losses.
