Zooma Tour Cancelled

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 tix@musictoday.com

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).”

    Demand not high enough? Egos bitching? What do you think happened?

  • riceman

    What happened was nobody finished the job. Opening acts were being booked last minute,even headliners were booked last min.,,Les was only lined up like fucking last week,,, no wonder tix. sales were low,,,,there was hardly a lineup. Tery and Ben Harper are a solid lineup,,,but not on week day slots at huge ampitheaters with no openers,,,or at least none we know (Xavier Rudd, Brazillian Girls?) EXEPT Gomez, who I thought should have been on the main stage. I’m bummed out,,but I understand,,,there just arent enough people w/ their ears on. And Trey thinks he’s Jerry now,,,, like he can do no wrong. Bonnaroo is doing well,, so he thought no matter what he threw together would sell out instantly and he could chuckle all the way to the bank w/ a pile of cash. This will prob. humble him a bit. Trey isn’t Phish. He wasn’t selling out his solo tour this Spring,
    I’m not sure if Bonnaroo is sold out,,now this.( after Lolla. last year,,he should have known better) Hopefully everybody learns from this. Now I shall smoke a spliff from the bag I bought w/ the money I got from returning my Zooma ticket !

    It’s super unfortunate actually that this type of festival just does not seem to work right. It makes so much sense on paper, but it seems like when the plans actually need to occur they just don’t get done. Bands don’t get booked. Permits are forgotten. Any example you could think of is another chance for an overzealous promoter to get it wrong.

    Super. Unfortunate. ‘Nuff said.

    I ran into a buddy of mine at the Jam on the River in Philly yesterday…he works for a label and told me he heard only 600 tickets were sold for Hershey Park. Six hundred! I’m guessing ticket demand alone was enough for them to pull the plug.

    Too bad. I was lookin’ forward to MMW and Claypool at Camden with Trey and Harper. Guess I’ll just have to see Trey solo.

    I was definitely looking forward to these shows. They were hitting Deer Creek and Alpine Valley, and I was hoping on being able to catch at least one. I just can’t understand why the demand for these events just can’t be controlled correctly. The 2004 Lollapalooza debacle should have been avoided; the lineup alone should have been enough to support the shows…

    It’s just weird now that this has happened two years in a row…

    I guess Trey is a little overrated. Without Fishman he can’t even sell more than 600 concert tickets! lol
