Neon Trees cancels fall Homewood performance

By ASHLEY EMERY | October 18, 2012

Neon Trees, slated to perform at Homewood on Nov. 9, cancelled its appearance due to an unforeseen personal circumstance, according to an email the band sent to Campus Programming Coordinator Janet Kirsch. Kirsch sent a campus-wide email Tuesday announcing the cancellation.

The band cancelled, or postponed, their entire November college tour, which was initially intended to take place from Nov. 2 to Nov. 10.

According to Kirsch, they have not determined if the performance will be rescheduled in the future, but students will be compensated for their ticket expenditures.

“Yes, the refund will be automatically credited to your credit card.  This process may take up to 7-10 days,” Kirsch wrote in an email to The News-Letter.

In their email, Neon Trees did not explain their reasons for the cancellation.

“We look forward to working with everyone to try and reschedule these performances and to come back to each town as soon as possible,” Neon Trees wrote.

The Hopkins Organization for Programming (HOP) originally arranged the Neon Trees performance, but there are no existing plans to bring another performance or concert to campus to make up for the cancellation.

“That is still to be determined,” Kirsch wrote.

Many students are disappointed that they will not be able to see Neon Trees.

“I think it’s really sad,” freshman Taylor Alessio said. “It’s kind of unfair because everyone was looking for it. I hope the HOP plans something to make up for it.”
