Rock The Bells Cancelled

26 Sep

In a shocking turn of events, the iconic Rock The Bells concert series has decided to cancel their remaining shows in Washington, DC and New York City due to low ticket sales. The idea that concert had initially been cancelled was brought up as a rumor, only to later be verified by the owner of Guerilla Union. This situation is particularly sad when remembering that this is Rock The Bells’ ten-year anniversary.

Below is Chang Weisberg’s press release in entirety:

Chang Weisberg, founder and owner of Guerilla Union states: “First and foremost, it is with great sadness and disappointment that we must cancel the Washington, DC and New York City Rock the Bells dates due to lack of ticket sales. I, along with our staff, the artists, and all of the sponsors, media partners, local promoters, and radio stations involved are thankful for our supporters and the fans that planned on attending. It’s extremely unfortunate that we can’t complete the last half of the 10th Anniversary Rock the Bells tour. We did everything in our power to save the show. Unfortunately, the financial loss would have been devastating. This festival has been ten years in the making.  I am truly sorry we could not produce the show for all the fans who did buy their ticket in support of.”

Full refunds will be honored at the location where fans purchased their tickets.

Rock The Bells Unveiled

15 May

The iconic Rock The Bells festival threw a unveiling party in Hollywood on Tuesday night. The sold out party was to unveil their lineup for the 10th anniversary of the concert festival and had people such as TDE and Jhene Aiko in attendance. It has been revealed that artists such as Black Hippy, Tyler The Creator, Kid Cudi, Earl Sweatshirt, Rakim, and many more will be performing at the concert. In addition, there will be “performances” by holograms of Eazy E and ODB á la the Tupac hologram that shocked crowds at Coachella last year. The festival has four stops; two being in California, one in New Jersey, and DC being added to the line up this year. Also, Hot 97’s Peter Rosenberg and rapper Murs will be the hosts for this year’s festival. With all that being said and as someone who attended Paid Dues earlier this year, I can say that Rock The Bells will definitely be a festival worth going to. I for one plan to be in attendance this year (speaking it into existence).
