Four of hair metal’s finest will tour together
The Big Rock Summer Tour 2020, featuring Ratt, Skid Row, Slaughter and Cinderella’s Tom Keifer, has postponed early summer dates due to COVID-19. The Live Nation-produced trek was set to kick off June 3rd in Farmingville, NY and stop at more than two dozen cities throughout North America.
“The Big Rock Summer Tour 2020 May & June dates are rescheduling out of an abundance of caution for our fans, crew and venue staff,” Live Nation shares in a statement. “As soon as we have dates finalized, we’ll share the updated scheduled, and all tickets will be honored accordingly. We truly appreciate your understanding, and value your patronage. Stay healthy, stay safe, and we’ll see you soon.”
Postponed dates include June 3rd in Farmingville, NY; June 6th in Rosemont, IL; June 9th in Sterling Heights, MI; June 10th in Cincinnati, OH; June 12th in Atlantic City, NJ; June 13th in Canandaigua, NY and June 14th in Bethel, NY.
As of now, the tour has much of July and August off before resuming on August 25 in Syracuse, NY. Quiet Riot is set to fill in for two shows in September. Once for Slaughter and Keifer at a September 5th stop at the Nebraska State Fair in Grand Island, NE and again the next night in place of Keifer in Denver.
The postponed dates should qualify for Ticketmaster and Live Nation’s newly announced 30 day refund window that starts May 1st. The companies announced last week that fans will have 30 days to request a refund for a postponed show starting May 1st, if they want one. Otherwise, tickets that are not refunded will be good for the rescheduled date.
The refund news follows Ticketmaster’s response to refunds after receiving backlash from ticketholders when it removed the wording “if your event is postponed, rescheduled or canceled” from its refund policy to reflect only cancelations as the way to receive a refund.
