I was having trouble with the MB Dates Added thread going to the last page so I'm thinking it is at it's limit so starting this new thread.
You are going to find a number of things on the web and on band member's websites before I announce, or they end up in the Tour section here, or MB's official Facebook and I want to explain why. Michael's management and tour people start setting things up and working with promoters and venues most times a long time before we hear about them. There are logistics that have to be worked out as well as schedules, deposits, agreements, etc that are all signed and ok'd before Michael's people consider them confirmed. The band member's may put them on their websites also before we do because they are given the dates while they are being worked on, so they will hold those dates in their busy schedules as well. A lot of the band do other gigs when they aren't with Michael so they are asking them to hold those dates. Promoters and venues sometimes post before all is confirmed on Michael's end as well because they want to get the word out and tickets sold but sometimes that works against them and most of us have seen that happen when a concert doesn't work out and tickets have to be refunded or taken down with no explanation. Most of the times the ones you find on websites of the venues or band member's sites do work out but because there is the chance they might not until all i's are dotted we don't post on the main page until it is!!
Yes, see you there. Good job being persistent :)
Thanks, it never hurts to try!
IMPORTANT NOTICE : Believe many will now be, or will have received, notification from ATG Tickets that MICHAEL BOLTON's "An Audience With Michael Bolton - My Life Story" tour of the UK is now CANCELLED. Can assure you Michael is, more than devastated, this decision has had to be arrived at but can also assure, circumstances making it necessary, are completely and utterly outwith Michael's hands. Please follow advice in e-mail notification on refunds.

Having seen MB live 14 times since 1991, I was really looking forward to finally meeting him with the VIP package! These things can't be helped I guess. Do you know of the reasons why Sylvia?
ATG were superb in processing the refunds and no qualms whatsoever!
Hope you're well.
Best, as always,
Sorry about your disappointment James but you WILL meet him someday, you will ... keep believing and dreaming !!! :)

Sylvia, I read some of the comments on Fbook and I do understand how they feel but wish they'd stop blaming Michael personally. I've not heard from ATG yet (Manchester) but if I've not heard by tomorrow I'll email them, see what they say.
A shame it was this one, I was looking forward to it, moreso than the other one! I'm also awaiting the other to be cancelled as well - then I won't have to read all about it.
Thanks Syl, sorry I was right.
I have just heard from management and all the Audience with Michael Bolton are now cancelled. Hopefully they should be getting to you with money refunds. Michael is very upset that they have had to be cancelled.
Thank you very much Gail for letting us know. Until we hear otherwise I'll assume the concerts are still on. Will get in touch with ATG tomorrow. They're probably frightened of letting me know after last time! ;)
Yes the regular concerts before these KONG events are still on.
i with you. Totally disappointed and ATG prob got us both on Do Not Answer list after last time!!! Still got RAH tkt. but not meet and greet as ridiculous price, and as much as I love MB tooo much on top of trip down! I had front row seat as well at Manchester for meet and greet!!! Maybe recompence could be free meet and greet if going to concert!? Just a thought?
Still not received an email, except to advertise another event at the Opera House. I went to their site and it still has Michael listed for 9th November …. I think he's sneaking into Manchester just to see us two Julie!! ;)
Being realistic I've not had a text either and as they've contacted me via email/text/phone in the past - I'm easy to get hold of. I'll give them a ring tomorrow, try and find out something.
yeh guess he is saving himself just for us,!! I haven’t heard anything either, assuming they drip feeding emails so not inundated! See what tommorow brings?! Are you going to any of concert dates? I got RAH so looking forward to that, tempted to book Manchester or Blackpool on getting refund, but meet and greets are silly money compared with talk show ones! ?
Take care, regards
