Elvis Costello Cancels November 1 Pittsburgh/Heinz Hall Show Because of Strike
Elvis Costello has cancelled his November 1st tour date at Heinz Hall for the Performing Arts in Pittsburgh, PA because of an ongoing strike by the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra. Heinz Hall is the Orchestra's home venue.
Costello released the following statement:
"I regret to inform you that our "Imperial Bedroom & Other Chambers" concert at Heinz Hall cannot go ahead, as I am unwilling to cross an AFofM picket line during the current strike by the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra.
I hope that the dispute will soon be settled honorably and amicably and that The Imposters and I will have the opportunity to perform at Heinz Hall before too long.
We send our apologies to ticket holders and all our friends in Pittsburgh with thanks for your understanding and support of live music wherever it is heard.
Respectfully. Elvis Costello."
Ticket holders will receive their refunds via point of purchase.
