After a huge upset due to the cancellation of Rock The Bells in DC & NY, Guerilla Union founder Chang Weisberg addresses the elephant in the room to the fans. Pay attention to how the cancellation came to be and hopefully this message can calm the steaming heads out east.
Ultimately, though… we just didn’t sell enough tickets. There’s not any one singular reason why the show didn’t happen outside of us not selling the amount of tickets that we needed to pull off the show. The bigger reason’s the macro-version — there’s alot of great shows that were out touring in our same time period; that could be a factor. The fact that Jay-Z was on sale, the fact that Kanye was on sale, the fact that Drake was on sale; there were just a lot of great hip-hop shows, and I wish all of them well. I think competition increases the market, and I’m happy that all of these acts can be touring, and ultimately, maybe, that was one of the issues.
Obviously this was one step for him to reach out to the fans, but expect Rock The Bells (as you have heard) to make a comeback to the east coast for 2014.
