Live Nation Draws Ire With 50% Refund On Janelle Monae Tix

MELBOURNE, Australia (CelebrityAccess) — Live Nation is standing fast on their decision to only refund 50% of the ticket price for a Janelle Monae and Kimbra show that was cut short after Monae took ill.

The performance, part of a Live Nation-produced tour of Australian and New Zealand, took place on May 17th. Kimbra performed but the audience was then told that Janelle Monae was too ill to perform.

Ticket purchasers subsequently learned that they were only going to receive a 50% refund on their tickets. Many took to social media platforms such as Facebook to express their discontent.

“Absolutely disgusted. Just found out I won't be receiving a full refund to the Kimbra/Janelle Monae concert that was held in Melbourne on May 17th at the Forum," a disgruntled fan wrote on Live Nation's page.

"We did not get what was promised to us on the ticket therefore are entitled to a full refund. I bought 3 tickets. If I still have to pay $150 for a very disappointing evening I am going to be furious. This refund must be reconsidered to a full refund,” the fan added. – Staff Writers
