Will Young fans left disappointed after the chart-topper’s weekend gig was cancelled were today handed a special gift by Cuffe and Taylor.
Will’s eagerly-awaited Symphony At The Tower performance was called off on Friday after the Hoghton Tower arena, near Preston, was deemed unsafe following torrential rain.
Fans who bought tickets will receive a full face value refund from ticket agents.
Now from this Wednesday, in a bid to allow as many of Will’s fans to see him perform live this summer, Cuffe and Taylor will cut the price of tickets for the Pop Idol’s show at BETLEY CONCERTS, CHESHIRE, on FRIDAY AUGUST 12 by more than 50% for anyone who bought a ticket for Hoghton Tower.
That means a General Admission ticket for Will Young’s Betley Concerts show is just £17 – a saving of £17.50.
Cuffe and Taylor director Peter Taylor said: “We were gutted to have had to cancel Will Young’s gig at Hoghton Tower – thousands of his fans had been looking forward to what promised to be a wonderful night.
“We feel for all Will’s adoring fans and so, to help them get to see him live this summer, we have decided to slash the price of tickets for Will’s performance at Betley Concerts to £17 – a saving of more than 50%.
“The Cheshire festival is just down the M6 and we hope as many fans who were due to see Will in Lancashire take advantage of this special discounted price and make the short trip to Betley.
“We also have Bryan Adams, Simply Red and the Total Access Live events at Betley so it should be a great weekend.”
Those who bought tickets for Will’s Hoghton gig will be contacted by Cuffe and Taylor explaining how they can take advantage of the special Betley Concerts price.
