BILAL CONCERT POSTPONED DUE TO ILLNESS.
As announced by Plug Research, “Bilal Oliver, Grammy nominated artist, suffered a severe asthma attack and had to be hospitalized. At this time all of the Canada dates are cancelled.”
Due to an illness and under doctor’s orders, Bilal has been forced to re-schedule his Tuesday, September 21st concert at Revival during the Manifesto Festival of Community and Culture.
Bilal is very disappointed and deeply apologizes to his Canadian fans. Plans are being discussed for a re-scheduled concert in November, and The Main Ingredient and Manifesto are working diligently in hopes to make an official announcement next week.
However, Manifesto is STILL proud to present tonight’s show at Revival for FREE with local headliners Slakah the Beatchild, Everything That’s Fly, and Ania Soul, with DJ Mensa and host Big Norm. Doors open at 9PM, with the show beginning at 10PM. We hope you can join us as we continue to showcase Toronto’s homegrown talent and celebrate 7 days of amazing Manifesto Festival Programming.
In the meantime, hang on to your tickets, as they will be honoured should the Bilal show be re-scheduled.
If you wish to receive a refund, they will be available via point of purchase beginning Friday, September 24th, through to Friday, October 8th.
For purchases made through Credit Card online at ticketpicket.ca, refunds will be credited to the same card upon request from the ticket purchaser through the website.
Refunds will be made in full, not inclusive of any service fees, through the original mode of payment.
Yeah I like many of you we’re hoping to see Bilal but the show will go on. Everyone should still come out tonight and support some great talent.
