JOSH GROBAN POSTPONES HIS SOUTH AFRICAN TOUR
LOS ANGELES, CA. March 10, 2008. It is with great regret that Josh Groban announces that dates for his upcoming South African tour have been postponed. The new concert dates will be rescheduled and announced as soon as possible.
Groban was due to perform a series of concerts commencing in Durban on March 16th. Groban's management has been trying to coordinate the tour for weeks, but due to the failure of the tour promoter, Duncan Heafield of Kusasa (PTY) LTD, to perform his obligations with regard to the tour, the tour dates have to be pushed back.
Says Brian Avnet, Groban's manager, "We made the decision to reschedule the dates to ensure Josh's fans have the best possible live experience. To continue with the tour in March would just not be in the best interests of Josh's many fans in South Africa and we do not want to disappoint them."
Says Josh Groban, "South Africa is very dear to me and I have never forgotten the spirit and passion shown to me on my last visit. It saddens me that due to circumstances beyond my control these shows must be postponed. But I am looking forward to returning very soon and giving my fans the experience they deserve."
We have been advised by Ticketconnection that refunds for the shows they are involved with will be available at point of purchase (online at: www.ticketconnection.co.za or call: 0861 121 333 or at Mr. Price Everyday, Home and Sport outlets).
