Just coming in girls as obviously see a few in and to let you know I cannot find out anything more.  Yesterday a girl reported in the forum section here that she had been in touch with ATG TICKETS and had been informed that e-mails would be sent out this morning explaining about the cancellation and telling people what to do, i.e. if you wanted a straight swap of seat, refund or exchange.  As it was ATG Tickets I went on assumption that it related to all the venues concerned.  So far, today, I have heard of no one receiving such e-mails from any venue.  What I am still hearing is people are making contact with the venues because in the official announcement from Kong Events that is what you are told to do but, even TODAY, 1 HOUR AGO, venues are still saying they no nothing about cancellation.  Seemingly the theatre in Woking, from the visual appearance outside, still looks as though show is going to take place tomorrow.

Haven't said anything anywhere on a personal level but I am in same boat as everyone else and waiting to hear about shows in Liverpool and Sunderland where I was going.  Obviously because Sunderland not rescheduled then it is straight refund but for Liverpool as everyone is saying and as I have checked, a Saturday, night forget it.  Hotel I had previously booked to take in 12th Feb's date and which had booked for 2 nights is costing practically same plus it is non-refundable on a Saturday.  Having lost money previously because of that I do not book any hotel now unless I get refundable so, hey ho, no matter what, I ain't going to Liverpool and I think Michael and Kong Events are going to find a lot of people with the same view.

To finish with on my tuppence worth, there are plenty of beautiful theatres, in beautiful surroundings, that could hold such an event NORTH of Liverpool and yet two venues that are added, in place of those that can't be rescheduled, are in the same locale as two of the original venues which gives FOUR out of five in the SOUTHERN region and in particular the London region .... why ??????????????  That move to me doesn't half pose plenty of questions.

Here is hoping everything is sorted out soon and obviously, if I hear anything new will let you all know.

I called ATG tickets yesterday evening. They told me they hadn't officially been noticed by Kong Events but that would happen shortly. I should call back on Wednesday. Anyway, the good news is that you'll get a total refund if you can't make the new date.

I've popped on for a quick moan because that's all that's left me.   I was wondering about the places down south and whether to go for one of those, but I know the expense would be far too much.   I don't want to be in Liverpool on a Saturday night - cost a fortune and I don't know my way around any of it.  

I can't believe MB's coming to the UK and I can't go!   I've always gone in the past, but then again he's always played at M/c in the past.   I think it was Sylvia that mentioned MB's been on Twitter apologising and explaining why but I don't go on there.  Right, I'll wait and think how lucky those people are that can go.

Hi Julie,
I’m appalled at the poor communication regarding this shambles. Fans have paid money for tickets, hotels and travel and the communications have been seriously lacking. The venues are still advertising the event and when you to enquire they don’t seem to know it is cancelled!
Kong Events seem to have washed their hands of it, ATG tickets have not emailed fans to advise what to do and it appears we have to make our own approach to get refunds.
What I find most disappointing is the lack of any apology from Michael and the Management team. I am unable to attend the rescheduled events and feel very let down and quite bitter about the whole situation. Whilst I appreciate that sometimes unavoidable things happen such as illness I cannot but feel cheated by the fact ‘technical’ issues have caused the cancellation when it should have been known so much earlier than 5 days before the events were due to take place.
Please Michael for the sake of your very loyal fans please make a statement to us.

Maybe Kongevents and MBSINGS  Himself, need to make a def statement. Majority of us are longtime fans, spent a lot of money over the years, I was over moon to get tkt for Christmas, front row, meet and greet! Reluctant to rebook! I actually had tkt from first concert in 1991 to get signed!! 

Comment by Julie Hanley on February 5, 2018 at 8:28pm

Hi Diane,

yes like you, I got email saying hope you looking forward to trip!! Guy at ATG was , well we haven’t been told it is off so I can do nothing, have you had email off us!! I said Yes, saying hope I was looking forward to it!!! Liverpool an option, but not when i looked at hotels, Saturday night, Liverpool or Manchester, just go silly prices, football, concerts hen/stag does, they charge premium! So disappointed, as had meet greet package, and after  nearly nearly 30 years of concerts, was SOOO looking forward!!!! Xxx Hope all gets sorted, but no confidence in Kong Events. 

Regards

I came across a ticket site - forget the name of it now - but it still has tickets for MB in the UK this February and 3 of the theatres sold out! I emailed Kong yesterday and in the reply (from Nigel) today they sent the exact same speech they keep saying.   So tired of reading the same thing and now I've got to tackle ATG on their website!   To make matters worse I've just received an email from the Opera House, Manchester asking if I'm excited about the concert on the 11th.  Talk about rubbing it in!  So the only thing left for me is to tackle ATG but won't just yet.   I'm slightly tempted to go for the one in Liverpool in November but common sense says don't.   So disappointed.   di xx

Im so so sorry for every one that was going to these shows . I wanted to come desperatly but couldnt get any low cost flights from where I am in  italy. It was going to get extremly expensive  and complicated to come and with hotel aswell so i reluctantly  and with a very heavy heart decided to not book. Good Job for me i didn't book as i would now be loosing  alot of money . Hopefully it will go ahead in November. I will try to book for then & ive got more time aswell to sort flights  out etc.

Comment by Pauline Preston on February 5, 2018 at 9:29am

I do think that these shows "An Audience With" were very poorly advertised and really hard to book once fans did know about them.  The venues themselves did not promote them either and loads of people were completely unaware of them.  Perhaps now there is a lot more time, Kong Events will work hard to promote these unique exciting experiences with the great man himself.  I am relieved that the concert I have booked for is still going ahead in November and not cancelled.

Comment by Mary Williams on February 4, 2018 at 11:55pm

I am deeply saddened that this has happened and with such sort notice. I had worked overtime for the past few weeks to enable me to finish work early on the day to travel to Woking. If i hadnt seen it one facebook i would have had no idea because according to the New Victoria theatre they know nothing about this. It really bad business cancelling something with only 4 days to go especially for peope who are travelling and booked days off, hotels etc. Think Kong events need to eat some humble pie this is not what i would expect from someone like Michael who has been in the business for such a long time
