Attorney General Cuomo Secures Refunds For Rochester Consumers Who Purchased Tickets To Another Canceled Lil' Wayne Concert

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (January 20, 2009) – Attorney General Andrew M. Cuomo today announced reaching an agreement securing full refunds for consumers holding tickets for the canceled January 21, 2009 Lil’ Wayne concert at the Blue Cross Arena.

Tomorrow’ night’s concert marks the third time that Lil’ Wayne scheduled a show in the region and the third time that he has pulled out at the last minute. Attorney General Cuomo’s Office has obtained refunds for a previously canceled show on October 26 and continued to monitor the situation. Today’s agreement with concert promoter RMF Productions ensures that ticket holders will again get their money back.

“Fans who spent their hard-earned money for tickets deserve a prompt refund and my office will continue working to protect their interests,” said Attorney General Cuomo.

Consumers seeking a refund must do so by February 6, 2009 and turn in their original concert ticket.  Consumers may go directly to the Blue Cross Arena Box Office during normal business hours to obtain a refund. In the event that tickets were purchased through Ticketmaster, consumers must contact Ticketmaster directly, which will issue the refund.

Per an agreement reached in December 2008 with the Attorney General’s Office, both RMF Productions and Blue Cross Arena must clearly post the concert refund policy on posters and on the actual tickets at the point of sale.

The matter is being handled by Assistant Attorney General Carlos Rodriguez under the supervision of Assistant Attorney General In-Charge of the Rochester Regional Office Debra Martin.
