Injury Sidelines Aerosmith?
Blabbbermouth reports that the "show has been postponed 'due to an injury within the band,' according to a posting on the venue's web site." However, the band's official site had this vague statement: "The Aerosmith with ZZ Top concert in Cincinnati (July 1, 2009 at Riverbend Music Center) has been postponed. When more details are available they will be Posted here."
So was there an injury within the band? The venue seems to think so, but could the show have been axed due to poor ticket sales due to excessive prices? The band's vague statement leads to speculation like this but could there be another reason? Earlier this week Tony K reported on his blog "Apparently they recently played their hometown of Boston and guess what? The $233 tickets (after service charges) did not sell. I am told that the 10,000 seat shed had over 3,000 empty seats in the shed alone. So what happened? Live Nation representatives went up to the lawn and began recruiting people from the lawn to the pavilion for a $20 upgrade fee."
We'll have to wait and see what reason the band gives for the "postponement" but for now you can read more of Tony's blog story - here
