John Hanlon Forced to Cancel Tour

Media Release for IMMEDIATE USE: 2 June 2010

John Hanlon Forced to Cancel Tour.

With deepest regret, due to ongoing irreconcilable differences with the promoter, I have had to cancel my forthcoming nationwide tour “This is where it starts . . .” at the eleventh hour.

To persist would have resulted in concerts that would have disappointed my fans and friends and irrevocably damaged my reputation.

I apologise to the many people who contacted me through my website and went to such great lengths to track down tickets and information about the tour. If you don’t get your money back from the ticket vendors, write to me at my website and I will repay you personally.

After a 30 years break from touring, I was really looking forward to sharing songs old and new with you, so rest assured I will tour again in the not too distant future.

However, when I do, I will do so in a professional, well-planned way, that treats my audiences with the respect they deserve.

Thank you for listening.

John Hanlon
