As per official reports, “John Bonham A Celebration II” event has been canceled after organizers decided they were not able to deliver the event to a standard that would do justice to the town’s most famous musical son.
Promoter Ros Sidaway said: “We can only apologize to people who have been inconvenienced and were looking forward to what promised to be another memorable event. I’m sure we have made the right decision in canceling this year with a view to providing something even better in the future.
He further added:
We were doing this in the name of one of the all-time greats of rock music and it would be wrong to deliver anything less than the best. John‘s family recognize this, and we wouldn’t want to embarrass them or sell his memory short in any way. It’s encouraging that we know people are prepared to travel from all over the world to honor his memory in his hometown.”
