Jon Bon Jovi Cancels Vancouver Concert over Permit Problems
The near-sold out show, scheduled for Saturday, August 22, 2015 at Stanley Park, was cancelled on Monday, August 17, 2015.
A spokesman for Bon Jovi Tours Inc. says, “The band was ready and willing to give a great performance on Saturday. Unfortunately, the local promoter, Paper Rain Performances, has proven unable to guarantee a properly-produced event.
“Bon Jovi Tours Inc. shares the disappointment of fans for this cancellation and we are grateful for the city of Vancouver’s support as we tried to keep this concert as scheduled for Saturday.”
The show was set to feature The Doors’ Robby Krieger.
Reports suggest the concert promoter was unable to secure required permits for the concert.
