Zac Brown Band cancels Canada concert Friday night after some members denied entry at border
Ticket sales for upcoming gig have been hit by complaints
Fans, who have been turned away, have criticized the band for ‘poor customer service’
The venue has released a statement saying the band will be playing the show
Fans have voiced their disappointment over the band cancelling a concert in Toronto as the country’s music industry awaits Justin Bieber, who was recently taken to a hospital for evaluation after reportedly being involved in a drunken-driving incident earlier this week.
The show was set to take place in Toronto’s Rexall Place, and the venue has released a statement in response to the cancellation.
‘Fans and partners across Canada are extremely disappointed to learn that the band would not be able to play in Toronto due to an issue with security at the venue. The venue is working to resolve the issue and is looking at all options available to ensure that the show can go on as planned. In keeping with their long-term commitment to bringing great concerts to Canada in the fall, the band will play the show at other dates on their tour, including Montreal on October 15 and Winnipeg on October 17.’
The band has also cancelled Canadian shows scheduled for later this year, including shows in Seattle and Winnipeg.
‘As many of you know, we had planned a Canadian tour in September and October and the concerts were canceled last night. We’ve taken action to help find alternate dates and are very grateful to our fans who have reached out to us for help with security upgrades and other accommodations for the dates in October.’
The band’s current Canadian tour will be in addition to the band’s fall tour, which is set to kick off on September 27.
Ticket sales for the upcoming show, set to take place on October 5, have been hit by complaints that the concert was denied entry at the border.
