After careful consideration and with no short-term solution for the coronavirus pandemic in sight, the Town of Sedgewick regrets to announce that the #REDNEK concert featuring Gord Bamford and guests slated for March 20th, 2021 has been cancelled. Full refunds will be offered for both table and individual seat sales beginning October 28th. Tickets purchased at either the Killam or Sedgewick Wild Rose Co-op grocery stores and the Town of Sedgewick administration office will be refunded at the Town of Sedgewick administration office only. Tickets must be presented to receive the refund. Tickets purchased online through Ticketmaster will be refunded through that platform only.
The show was originally scheduled for April 18th, 2020 but was postponed to November once the province shut down due to the virus. The concert was postponed once again to spring 2021 however with that date only being a few months away and the pandemic continuing to effect the ability to gather indoors, Town Council decided that another postponement was not appropriate.
“We greatly appreciate our sponsors and the music fans that have supported this initiative over the last 3 years,” stated Mayor Perry Robinson. “We’ve accomplished a great deal in bringing these types of shows to a small community such as ours and we hope to bring more in the future once we find a path that allows us to do so. In the meantime, we don’t feel it is fair to once again postpone the concert and hold onto the money of our loyal customers any longer. Issuing full refunds is the right thing to do at this point and hopefully helps to further strengthen our relationship with our corporate sponsors and other ticket-buyers whether they are within or outside our region.”
Businesses and individuals who purchased a corporate table do not need to request a refund as cheques will be hand delivered. Individual tickets can be refunded at the Town of Sedgewick administration office any time after 10am on October 28th. Office hours are 8:30am to 4:30pm with the office being closed during the lunch hour.
