According to the festival’s website, this summer’s upcoming ZOOMA Tour, featuring Trey Anastasio and Ben Harper among many other guests, has been cancelled.

As Principal Joe Clark said to Mrs. Elliot, “Your concert is hereby cancelled. You do know what cancelled means…over, finished, terminated!”

But hakuna matata, folks, leave your worries behind — Big Red is planning a whole new summer tour. 70 Volt Parade will not be denied its chance to make you miss the popular rock band Phish.

Here’s the latest on the cancellation:

“The producers of the ZOOMA Tour regret to announce that this summer`s tour has been canceled. Ticket refunds for all dates will be given through the outlets where the tickets were purchased.

The Zooma Tour was conceived to provide fans with an exceptional musical and entertainment experience. Due to unforeseen circumstances, it has become clear that it would not be possible to provide that experience at the level initially envisioned. Rather than go forward with a tour that falls short of what was conceived, everyone involved has mutually agreed that it is best to cancel the tour altogether.”

“We want to thank all of the fans for their support and the tour`s staff for their dedication and hard work on this project. We look forward to exploring new and exciting opportunities in the future.

If you purchased your tickets through Trey Anastasio or Ben Harper ticketing pre-sales, the card you placed your order with will automatically be refunded for ticket face value plus all other service and shipping charges.

Refunds will begin Friday May 27 and continue until June 2nd. Once the refund is processed you will automatically receive and email confirmation. Please note: it can take up to 2 business days for the refund to show up on your account. If you have any questions, please e-mail

If you purchased your ticket(s) through TicketMaster via phone or internet, the credit card you used will be automatically refunded. If you purchased from the venue box office or a TicketMaster outlet you must return the ticket to the point of purchase for a refund. Face value plus service charges will be refunded (handling and delivery charges will not be refunded).”
