Title: Miami concert tonight CANCELLED
Post by: 3 Peckered Owl on November 12, 2017, 01:34:50 PM

Dear Patron:

Unfortunately, tonight’s show, The Paper Airplane Request Tour featuring Ben Folds, at the Olympia Theater in Miami has been cancelled. Refunds are available at point of purchase.

A Note From Ben Folds:

It pains me to do this, but I have to cancel tonight's show. During this most recent tour run I picked up some kind of virus and it's knocked me flat on my ass. My doctor has ordered immediate bed rest.  This is the first time I've ever had a show cancelled because I got sick. But I have no choice.  I'll be back in Miami and promise to make it up to you all.


Ticket holders for the Sunday November 12, 2017 will receive a FULL Refund.  If you purchased your tickets through the Olympia Theater Box Office with a credit card, that card has been issued a refund.  Please allow 5-7 business days for the transaction to reflect on your bank card statement.   If you have questions or need further information; send your inquiry to or call our office on Monday at 305.374.2444.

Once again the November 12, 2017 performance of Ben Folds: Paper Airplane Request Tour has been cancelled, ticket holders will recieve a full refund.

I guess Ben never heard of POSTPONING a show, rather than flat out cancelling.   

He usually avoids South Florida like the plague in the first place.   Other than his piano concerto thing in Miami 2015, he hasn't been here since April 2009 in Boca Raton.   And before that, not since 1997!  (with the exception of a couple of short opening act sets (for Tori Amos, John Mayer, etc.)    Anyway, this sucks!
