UPDATED: Prince event marked canceled is not canceled, a rep says
The 2-for-1 deal is still good.
DALLAS UPDATE: A press release went out today at about 1:30 p.m. saying the Prince/Erykah Badu show is canceled. The statement from Joyce Goss, executive director of The Goss-Michael Foundation, read:
But, that's not true, Scott Lonski, a representative associated with the event, confirmed by phone. "It is not canceled. There was a premature announcement, and some information went out that was incorrect." He called it a "miscommunication," saying that there was a belief that some band members wouldn't be able to arrive in time because of weather, plus other concerns. "Someone fired off the release before they should have, basically," he said.
They sent information earlier today that tickets are 2-for-1, and Lonski confirmed this is still true. Below is the original story:
We called it one of the best Super Bowl events this weekend. And now, the concert featuring Prince and Erykah Badu comes at a deal: Today, the day of the show, Prince tickets are two-for-one for general admission tickets. That means it's $1,500 for two people, or $750 apiece.
Here's how you get 'em:
We reported this week that the Prince concert has moved indoors to the Hotel InterContinental, thankfully, after it was previously scheduled to be in a tent on the former site of Reunion Arena. (If the tent in Fair Park is any indication, non-permanent structures aren't doing so well in the ice and snow.)
