Bret Michaels was not too thrilled when he found out that his show was postponed-by showing up to the venue in Syracuse, New York on Thursday only to see nothing had been set up for the gig. Her arrived at the CNY Regional Market venue in Syracuse, New York on Thursday morning ahead of a planned concert there that evening, but they soon realized the show had been canceled without their knowledge.
The show had been postponed due to low ticket sales and Michaels admits he was furious that concert promoter Mike Banks had not told them earlier, but who wouldn't be? And to add fuel to the fire Banks has yet to pay back the band's deposit on the venue.
He tells New York's WSYR-TV, "You don't just go: ';Hey I don't feel like paying anybody.' I think with a guy like Mike, he bit off more than he could chew… Here's what he's done: lots of fans will be disappointed. The fans mean everything to me, everything – cause to me that's what makes the rock ';n' roll world go round."
Banks says in defense, "I never anticipated less than 1,000 tickets would be sold online for a superstar like Bret Michaels. A lot of the money which was set aside for deposits was used up due to lower attendance than anticipated."
It still probably would've been nice if you would've warned the talent not to show up.
