Post Sucking the big one...
That would be Ruth Eckerd Hall. Like all of the other patrons, we drove to Clearwater tonight to see the sold-out performance of Chick Corea and Bela Fleck.

OR NOT.

When we arrived, we discovered the show had been cancelled. (I don't know if someplace somebody might have said "postponed," but we heard "cancelled."

It is now 8:50, and we are home after driving there and back. NOWHERE on Ruth Eckerd's website is there any mention of cancellation. There was no e-mail (they have NO difficulty e-mailing when there are shows to promote), no robo-call, no nuthin'.

INEXCUSABLE ON THE PART OF RUTH ECKERD HALL.

The nanosecond you KNEW there would be no show, you should have gone to every media outlet at your disposal to get the word out.

THEY SUCK.

I will think twice about going back. OK, that's a lie. I ALREADY have tickets for Yes in April. I will be calling THEM that day to make sure there is no cancellation.

DAMN.

Look on the bright side... You were already there, so you got your money back without delay.

From what I read this morning, the show was canceled because Chick got snowed in and couldn't get here in time for the show. They do plan to reschedule.

I agree that REH should've done something more to attempt to notify the public that the show was off. They'd have gotten most of the ticketholders by sending out an email blast to everyone on their mailing list. Should've done that, as well as putting something up on the webpage. Of course, with it being on a Sunday I imagine their computer geekrus were not working.

I'd thought hard about going to that show; didn't because it's my swamped time at work. I'd have been really pissed if I'd driven down there, only to have it canceled.

Thanks. There is still NOTHING on the REH website. I did not see it in the Tampa Bay Times this morning, either.

So they knew Chick could not get back to Clearwater. Wake up one of the geekrus and get his arse to the computer for an e-blast.

I stand by INEXCUSABLE.
