The Show Must - And Must Not - Go On

As the weather situation continues to pay havoc with people's schedules, the City's been sending updates about shows currently scheduled for tonight in the Royal City.

Good news first. For all you Hipsters, the Tragically Hip will indeed be keeping their date tonight at the Sleeman Centre with special guests, The Arkells. Here's the press release:
GUELPH, ON, February 8, 2013 – Tonight’s sold-out Tragically Hip concert with special guest Arkells is going ahead as planned.
As scheduled, doors will open at 7 p.m. with the concert starting at 8 p.m.
“The show set up is progressing well and we are anticipating a fabulous show this evening,” says Rich Grau, facility manager at the Sleeman Centre where the concert is taking place.
With Guelph Transit buses operating and the weather expected to improve throughout the day, no ticket refunds will be issued.
For fans still looking to get their hands on tickets, Grau says it is possible some extra tickets will be released to the public after 1 p.m. today. Fans should visit  ticketmaster.ca or call the Sleeman Centre Box Office at 519-837-5630.
But the bad news is that the Mike Mandel comedy show tonight at the River Run has been cancelled. Here's the press release about that:
GUELPH, ON, February 8, 2013 – Tonight’s Mike Mandel comedy show at the River Run Centre is cancelled.
“Mike Mandel was looking forward to his appearance in Guelph this evening, but felt that it was unsafe to make the drive in from out-of-town due to the weather conditions,” says Ella Pauls, manager of Cultural Development at the City of Guelph.
River Run Box Office staff will contact everyone who has purchased tickets to arrange refunds.
