Elton John Concert Called Off
COLUMBUS (Ben Garbarek) -- Some Elton John fans are upset after the legendary artist canceled his upcoming show at Nationwide Arena.
Organizers said the show is called off because of a scheduling conflict. Tickets for the November 20 show just went on sale on Monday.
"I remembered on Monday Elton John tickets were going on sale," said Elton John fan Greg Casey. "I went to Kroger and scored me a couple of prime seats and I was so happy."
Casey and many other fans are now going to have to get a refund.
"I was sure pumped up," he said. "I was so hoping I could see him here the week before Thanksgiving. I guess that's not going to happen."
Concert organizers said the show was selling well before it was called off.
Elton John canceled a show in Columbus in 2005 as well. He eventually came several months later to perform. So far there's no make-up date for this latest show.
"I had a special person in mind (to take to the show)," Casey said. "(He's) a great artist. Well, guess maybe next time."
Anyone that bought an online ticket will get a refund automatically. Anyone that bought a ticket in person will have to go back to where they purchased their tickets to get their money back.
