If the situation with concert cancellations weren't enough, THEFT on the part of Live Nation and TicketMaster continues. On the heels of KISS cancelling the rest of their tour for 2020, Live Nation added that "if rescheduled dates are not announced within 60 days of the postponement announcement, fans will have a 30-day window to request refunds." A 30-day window which we are positive will have delayed postings, server issues and hardly any customer service agents to handle complaints. As it took a staffer on 99WNRR 3 months to receive a full refund after the cancellation of a show at a venue in Philadelphia, Live Nation continues to use excuse after to excuse to not give full refunds upon request, even after signing a $500 million dollar deal with Saudi Arabia to save their collective skin from going bankrupt under a pile of lawsuits.

Upstate New York has just about kissed the entire summer concert season goodbye.
KISS postponed its U.S. farewell tour dates Monday, including an Aug. 31 concert at CMAC in Canandaigua with David Lee Roth. According to Live Nation, a rescheduled date will be announced soon.
Tickets for the original date will be accepted for the new date. Fans can opt for a refund within 30 days of the new show date being announced; if rescheduled dates are not announced within 60 days of the postponement announcement, fans will have a 30-day window to request refunds.
The only other remaining concert on CMAC’s calendar, Steve Martin and Martin Short on Aug. 29, was canceled this past week. All other 2020 shows at the venue have been canceled, postponed or rescheduled.
Concerts have slowly been upended due to the coronavirus pandemic. The lineup at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts was finally cleared last month and KoRn’s Sept. 6 show at Darien Lake with Faith No More has now been canceled.
Just five shows are still tentatively scheduled -- and will likely be axed -- at Live Nation amphitheaters in Upstate New York:
