The announcement for the Fresno date, which was scheduled for July 19 at the Save Mart Center, came this afternoon.

All purchased tickets will be refunded. Online and telephone sales will be refunded automatically. Tickets purchased from the Box Office or ticket outlets must be returned to the point of purchase. The Save Mart Center Box Office will begin refunds 10 a.m. Monday during business hours.

This is the first show at the Save Mart Center than I can remember ever being canceled. It’s the second canceled show in the last week.

Wasnt AC/DC (or some similar band) announced and cancelled in the same week last year?

Josh Tehee says:

Yes. Upon further review, it seems that Van Halen cancelled a show a few years back.
