    This is not the first Kings on Ice show to have problems recently. There was the mega-show back in December that was canned too.

    I think Plushy needs to find himself some new promoters for KOI. It's got the potential to be a great show, but recently it's just been trouble. And I'm sure the last thing he wants is any fans getting ripped off over it.

    :(

    But I must say the whole thing confuses me. Posters, a ticketer selling tickets, promotion on his official website - someone in his camp definitely thought this was going ahead. I wonder if there was some kind of miscommunication with the venue?

    Hope anyone who's bought tickets can get their money back. Or a show goes ahead.

    I really dont find Zakarian such a great manager to start with, he has done some good shows but he has also done many fouls and is irresponsible.

    This one seems to say that there was a "verbal agreement" of sorts, but nothing finalized, and the promoter just jumped the gun on advertising before the contract was complete.

    :rolleyes: I think Plush needs to hire more disciplined agent, or Zakarian should hire a disciplined subordinate. Kings on Ice is very attractive... If it had many problems so far, that's a waste :(

    The promoter and agent should work diligently for skater and audience :(

    I guess rumors are always there to cling on successful people:(

    If there were no tickets to sell and no ice time, why was there an add even for one day? :confused:

    Because of "verbal agreement" (<- according to the organizer)? :rolleyes:
