Concert Was Postponed But Now Where Is My Money?
Where is my money now that the concert has been postponed?
My summer of 2020 was all planned out before the snow even melted. I planned on going to a bunch of concerts. Unfortunately, they all did not happen. The majority of them have just been postponed. A couple were canceled so I immediately got my money back.
Most of the postponed shows really do not have a rescheduled date because everything is still so up in the air. Some people are fighting to get their money back. I still want to go see those bands so I am just holding on to the tickets. I know the shows will eventually happen.
Social media is such a funny thing. I have seen people complaining about their concert ticket money. They accuse the bands, promoters, venues, and ticket agents of getting rich on their money. Customers are also worried that they will never see that money ever again.
I have worked many shows in my day, so I have a little insight into what is going on but I thought I should bring in an expert. My friend, Don Kronberg, is the owner NiteLite Promotions which is a concert promoter company. He puts on many shows and knows the whole story. I had a chance to chat with him about the whole situation. Check it out if you missed it.

The truth is your money is safe. It is in an account that none of the parties involved can touch until the show actually happens. There is nothing to be afraid of because your money is safe. Keep a watch on the websites and social media accounts for the bands and venues for the most up-to-date information.
