Attention music fans: the Jon Bon Jovi concert scheduled for Stanley Park this weekend has been cancelled.
The Vancouver promoter “Paper Rain” has issued a statement saying, “we regret we have been unable to gain the agreement of the artist’s management at this time.”
A statement from the band says they were willing to put on a great performance but organizers have failed to pay for staging, security and lighting so have not met their agreements.
The City of Vancouver confirms organizers did get initial approval from the park board but have failed to get necessary permits for the event.
A call to the President of “Paper Rain” has not been returned.
