Maxwell has joined other artists postponing either part or all of their concert tours this year. It’s the usual reason given for poor ticket sales, “scheduling differences” (Pollstar) , but the obvious reason would be the high ticket prices and poor economy.
Too many overpriced concerts are the blame for all the artists backing out of tour dates this summer, but blowing them all off until next year won’t help much either. It’s time for artists such as Maxwell to decide if high concert ticket prices are really in their best interests.
And by now the fans know the drill, please return your Maxwell tickets to the point of purchase. With all the canceled concert tours this year, fans better be careful of where they buy their concert tickets.
If you bought tickets for the Maxwell concert through Craigslist or a private party, good luck getting a refund. Ticket brokers give a full refund for canceled concerts and that makes a good case for buying from a ticket broker as opposed to Craigslist.
