The second show (Nov. 13) of "Michael Jackson: The IMMORTAL' at the Spokane Arena has been canceled because of unforeseen travel and logistical problems, according to Cirque du Soleil.
The Nov. 12 show will proceed as scheduled.
The official reason for the cancellation was given as follows: "Cirque du Soleil has cited that the time it takes to move the production into a facility, and the time it takes to move out of a facility, has conflicted with travel time between cities on the tour. These unforeseen issues are due in-part to the overall size of the production."
Or maybe slow ticket sales? That's always a possibility whenever a show is canceled. Ticketholders for the Nov. 13 show will be contacted by TicketsWest and offered an opportunity to exchange their tickets for the Nov. 12 show. That implies that there were plenty of seats still left.
However, the show does need to get all set up in Eugene for a Nov. 15 show. And I found that a second show in Detroit was canceled a few weeks ago for the same logistical reasons.
By the way, Nov. 13 ticketholders can get a full refund if they prefer.
