Press release from Mile One Centre from July 24:
“(St. John’s, NL)— Summer Blast 2012, hosted by Keith Dean, J Ohh and DJ Juice, featuring T-Pain, Far East Movement, Anjulie, and DRU scheduled for Friday, August 24, has been cancelled. Just almost three weeks after the on-sale of the event, it has been cancelled due to disappointing ticket sales.
Refunds will be available starting July 24 for a period of 30 days. Those who purchased tickets by cash or debit can get a refund at the Mile One Centre box office. Those who purchased tickets by credit card will automatically receive a refund within the next few days. For any questions, you can reach the Mile One Centre box office by phone at (709)576-7657. T-Pain, Far East Movement, Anjulie, and DRU regret any inconvenience to fans that come as a result of the cancellation.”
Did T-Pain know his 2005 single “I’m ‘n Love (Wit a Stripper)” would ripple out into the world of urban music and create one of the most enduring leitmotifs in the hip hop/R & B game? Since dropping that game-changing joint, dozens of artists from R Kelly to Frank Ocean have confessed to love with exotic dancers. Equally noteworthy is T-Pain’s pioneering use of Auto-Tune, one of the most beloved and omnipresent sounds on the FM dial today. You can catch this august rapper-turned-singer this August at Mile One. Also on the bill are the future-is-now wunderkinds Far East Movement, Anjulie, and DRU. Summer Blast is hosted by Keith Dean, J Ohh and DJ Juice. Tickets are $39.75 to $49.75, available at Mile One. 576-7657.
