BIG TICKET CONCERT EXPLANATION:
So tonight, we delayed opening doors due to weather until 8:30pm. At 8:30pm, we opened doors for all students who were lined up.
Approximately 600 students were let in and then evacuated into Isaac’s minutes later due to lightning. Shortly after students migrated into Isaac’s, the Big Ticket Outdoor concert was cancelled.
Alessia Cara found out the outdoor show was cancelled, but insisted on still playing for the students who waited in the rain for her.
She then performed for the 600 students who were moved from the outdoor stage to Isaac’s. We could not allow any other students into the bar due to capacity, which is why we weren’t able to promote the indoor performance while it was happening.
We here at BUSU understand that this is not the best case scenario. We wish as much as you do, that the outdoor show could have happened, but we were in a position where we had no choice but to cancel the show. Information on refunds will be announced on Monday, September 12th via Twitter, Facebook and via email to VIB members.
We apologize for the situation, but have done the best we can in circumstances that were not ideal.
We don’t anticipate that everyone will understand the situation, but we can assure you that we tried to do what was best for student safety!
