COLOMBIA CANCELLATION PRESS RELEASE
The promoters who were bringing the Easy Star All-Stars to Bogota, Colombia, this past weekend for the show that ended up being cancelled by the police at the last minute have issued a press release. The text of it (in Spanish and English) is below. We want to make sure our fans in Colombia know that the All-Stars had nothing to do with the cancellation and hoped to play. We are hoping the band can return later this year to play. We will say from our side that the promoters, Red Rock Interactive, treated the band well and were dealing with issues out of their control that cancelled the show. They are doing their best to make everything right with the fans now.
Los organizadores del concierto Easy Star All Stars se excusan frente a su público por la cancelación del evento este viernes 14 de Mayo de 2010.
Toda boleta comprada será restituida por medio de puntos Tu Boleta a partir del 20 de Mayo. Si la boleta fue comprada a uno de los socios, les pedimos nos informen para restituir el dinero.
Asumimos la responsabilidad completamente y nos comprometemos a solucionar cualquier daño hecho.
Lamentamos profundamente la pérdida de tiempo y recursos causada a los asistentes. El evento y el grupo en Facebook se mantendrán abiertos hasta que podamos darle atención a todas las personas perjudicadas.
Reafirmamos nuestro compromiso con este tipo de eventos y pronto tendremos una fecha alternativa para el concierto.
Agradecemos a los Easy Star All Stars, Pulenta, Voodoo Souljahs y a De Juepuchas por su gran apoyo y entendimiento durante este difícil momento.

We reaffirm our commitment to bringing these types of events to Colombia, and if possible and when appropriate we will reschedule the concert.
