Bryan Adams’ Delhi Concert Postponed

UPDATE: Click here for the procedure of the Refund Process

In the morning when I updated my status this:

Mere bina Bryan Adams ke Concert pe jaane wale.. bhagwan kare baarish aa jae aur concert cancel ho jae 😀
Dedicated to Abhishek Mishra

Little did I know.. that concert is going to be cancelled for real.. 😀

I so pity on Abhisekh right now… Sorry bro.. really sorry.. Loss is mine too as now I know you wont record it for me 😛

So what actually caused the cancelation??

Here’s what..

The organizers of the mega event failed to get mandatory clearance (NOC – Non Objection Certificate) from Delhi Police, Traffic Police and Fire Department which led to the mass disappointment of the thousands of fans.

The Primary reason stated by the authorities for not providing the organizers with the NOC was SECURITY and OverSale of tickets.. Around 10K tickets were sold for a venue to  hold 6K people.

We were not okay with the venue, the traffic and the vehicle parking arrangement, neither with the tickets being sold in numbers exceeding the capacity. We have had several objections since day one and based on that, we haven’t given them an NOC. How can they go ahead if we didn’t give any clearance? The concert is postponed. We had a meeting with the organisers and we explained what all they need to do in order to get all clearances. Unless they get approval on all those factors, the concert cannot happen. You can speak to them for rescheduled dates.
-Virender Chahal, additional Commissioner of Police (South-East)

Now What??

Don’t worry If you spent the money on the ticket its not wasted.. the concert would be rescheduled to a new venue most probably on 20th Feburary in Gurgaon..

The official site for selling the Concert’s tickets – also posted a notice on their site stating the postponement of the concert..

Per instructions we have received from the organizers, the Bryan Adams concert in Delhi has been postponed. For customers who have booked tickets online and through retail outlets, please DO NOT go to the NSIC venue to pick up your tickets. Details of the new venue, date and time will be available later this evening. Should customers choose not to attend the rescheduled concert, their ticket purchases will be refunded. The process of ticket exchanges/refunds will also be announced this evening. Please check this space for more updates.

Excerpt from HERE

Why Only In Delhi??

The Bryan Adams concerts in bangalore and in Mumbai went smoothly then why only in Delhi this SH*T happened?

Viraf Sarkari, director, Wizcraft International Entertainment tells why..

Getting licenses for events in Delhi is a very tedious process. There are 25 licenses one needs and for the longest time now, we have been trying to tell the authorities through the Event and Entertainment Management Association that there needs to be a single window clearance for permissions for such large-scale events.

And its not the first time that any Mega Event got cancelled due to Security concerns in Delhi..

Remember Grand Opening of Delhi Eye by Shah Rukh Khan?? and there many more too..

So lets see what happens next and how hard the organizers try to “Make a Night To Rememeber” by Delhi fan base of Bryan Adams.

Did you bought the tickets too?? What’s your take on it?? Feel free to shout out in the comments below..
