Ford Center still waiting to hear if Journey concert is postpone - 14 News, WFIE, Evansville, Henderson, Owensboro

It's official: the Journey concert has been postponed

Posted: Updated:

It's lights out for the Journey concert Thursday night in downtown Evansville.

Ticket holders are frustrated and disappointed that a concert they've been waiting for, in some cases for more than six months, has been postponed.

Some are turning in their tickets for refunds.

Jeff Williams splurged on floor seats, nearly $200, to the Journey concert at the Ford Center.

"Took a day off, me and my wife were really excited about going and when I finally heard the news that it was canceled I was like 'I don't know when I'm going to be able to take a day off when they do come to town,'" Williams said.

But he isn't running to the ticket office for a refund just yet.

"We probably would have got a refund, we still could I guess, but I'm going to bide my time and see when the concert goes down and go from there," said Williams. "Hopefully I have a vacation day to take."

But some fans decided it was time to turn in their tickets.

"I was looking forward to it, but I have seen Journey before so I'm not too disappointed," said Journey fan Don Rohlfer.

"The fact that, that time of year is just a bad time, and we'd rather wait and see if they're actually going to come back before we hold on to the tickets another couple months," said Sherry Carter.

Ford Center Executive Director Scott Schoenike says they were working with the band late Wednesday evening to set a rescheduled date.

"We're looking for January or February, but it does get tricky to have four buildings trying to re-route the whole thing to make sense for the act, and in January we only have nine open dates already, so it's a tough month to reschedule in," noted Schoenike.

The Ford Center says there were more than 7,500 tickets sold.

If you hold on to your tickets, they will be honored at the rescheduled show and we'll be sure to keep you posted when that date is released.
