Kid May Not Rock Ocala

A promoter in Ocala, Fla., has sold about 1,000 tickets for a Kid Rock show at the Southeast Livestock Pavilion but admitted Jan. 21 a formal contract for the concert was never signed and the concert was being “postponed.”

Promoter Mike Myers said he was negotiating with Creative Artists Agency to make the Kid Rock show happen, according to the Star-Banner.

“We have forwarded an offer to [CAA] and are waiting for a response,” Myers told the Star-Banner Jan. 21. “We want to get to the bottom of this.”

Although the paper reported that a spokesman for CAA said a show was never confirmed and that CAA may take legal measures to prevent Myers from advertising or publicizing any local Kid Rock concert, CAA spokeswoman Missy Davy told Pollstar the company had no comment.

Myers said he had been selling tickets through his own phone number for prices ranging from $35 to $75. The promoter said if the Kid Rock show was canceled, tickets would be refunded. However, if the show is rescheduled, he won’t offer any refunds.

“If there’s no concert, I need to get my money back,” Ocala resident Marc Sulter told the Star-Banner. Sulter said he purchased six $75 tickets and that he was promised front-row seats.

“I got my Kid Rock shirt and I’m ready to party.” Sulter said. “I hope it happens. If it doesn’t happen, [Myers] is going to have to give refunds or there will be [legal] problems.”
