Last Thursday, Florida Georgia Line fans came out to the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, New Jersey, but rain and misleading signs caused some fans to miss the show. Now, Live Nation is offering ticketholders free lawn seats to another show this summer.
On July 11, Holmdel was caught in the middle of a thunderstorm, causing the FGL show to be delayed. While some country fans were drenched standing out in the rain with their lawn seats, some people didn’t even make it to the lawn, as signs in the parking lot stated that the show was going to be postponed. Many ticketholders said that Live Nation venue staff members told them to leave the venue’s grounds since the show was cancelled, however, just before 10 p.m. that night, PNC shared a note on their social media pages noting that the concert would continue as planned.
Fans flooded the venue’s Facebook page to share their experiences.
“We apologize for the inconvenience and frustration this misinformation may have caused,” Live Nation said in an email to the affected fans. “We appreciate your patience and understanding as we worked to rectify the situation and in appreciation of your understanding, we’d like to invite you and your guests back to another concert this season.”
Live Nation addressed these concerns and are now offering free tickets to fans that had lawn seats. These free lawn seat tickets can be used for any show at the PNC Bank Arts Center, Northwell Health at Jones Beach on Long Island, or at the BB&T Pavilion in Camden. This summer, 20 shows have lawn seating at one of these venues, including Kidz Bop, Nelly, TLC & Flo Rida, Alabama, Heart, Korn, Breaking Benjamin, and Bush, among others.
However, some FGL fans aren’t too happy with Live Nation’s compensation, since after all, they can’t see another FGL show.
“We’re really disappointed how the Florida Georgia Line event was handled at PNC,” Tara Hart of Matawan said in an email to the USA Today Network New Jersey. “We were hoping for a refund but were willing to see what exactly they were offering to remedy the situation. Let’s just say Kidz Bop and Korn are not exactly FGL. We want our money back.”
FGL is currently on their Can’t Say I Ain’t Country Tour in support of their fourth studio record. They’re set to stop next in Virginia Beach on July 25 and make stops in cities like summer like St. Louis, Cleveland, Phoenix, San Diego, and Salt Lake City before wrapping-up in Irvine, California late September.
