Hot Ticket: S̶u̶m̶m̶e̶r̶ ̶B̶l̶a̶s̶t̶ ̶2̶0̶1̶2̶ ̶-̶ ̶A̶u̶g̶u̶s̶t̶ ̶2̶4̶ Cancelled

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.

    I am so happy this was cancled. After the debocle of last year it’s a good message sent. Pitbull was absolutley brutal last year. To follow it up and charge $50 to see a similar snoozefest is an insult. If this “summer blast” is to become a yearly fling then better talent must be brought in. St. John’s deserves some bigger names. Especially now where Mile One/the City can afford to do so.

    I’m glad shit shows get cancelled as well.

    I never even heard of this crapfest and I’m far from being a hermit. My ears to the ground, but I never seen 1 ad, heard people talk about it or seen a poster. Good marketing!
