The Country Throwdown Tour has canceled the shows in Houston (June 9), Dallas (June 10), San Diego (June 17) and Phoenix (June 18). In addition, the Bakersfield date has now moved from June 16 to June 18. Tickets from the Houston, Dallas, San Diego and Phoenix shows will be honored at all other Country Throwdown tour dates and refunds are also available at the point of purchase.
Tour Producer, Kevin Lyman, says, “After many attempts to keep these shows, we’re regretfully unable to bring Throwdown to these four markets.” Lyman is citing the following reasons for the cancellations of shows: “Low tickets sales and too many shows competing with one another. We are trying to bring a festival style tour with 21 artists, at a reasonable and fair ticket price (average ticket cost $31), but because most markets are currently flooded with shows, we end up cannibalizing one another and someone ends up with lower ticket sales.” Kevin adds, “As a result, we can’t afford to keep the show on the road for ALL of its intended dates. It’s a first year tour and we expected year one to be full of key lessons, so that next year—and there will be a next year—is even better.”
