Toronto Show postponed

So disappointed...the Toronto show has been postponed   cry until May 29 due to a family emergency and I will miss the show..but hoping that the show in Detroit is still on.

Sorry to hear this, and sorry to hear you can't make the rescheduled date.
 
Any insight as to why it was postponed?

Actually, it's been cancelled now along with a few more shows as Steven's father has sadly passed away.
 
Everything up to and including Vancouver is off, possibly more?
 
Steven's FB posts:
 
Quote:
In a few hours I will be getting on a plane to return to the UK, where my dear father passed away earlier today. I need to be with my family at this time, and for my Dad's funeral. Unfortunately that means that several Blackfield shows in North America are cancelled, starting with tomorrow's show in Toronto.

 
Quote:
Cleveland, Detroit, Chicago and Vancouver are all also definitely cancelled. My apologies to all those who bought tickets or made travel arrangements to come to these concerts, I hate doing this, but the circumstances are exceptional. As soon as I know when the tour can resume I will let you know.

Sometimes, doing something that you love, i.e., performing, can be a cleansing experience when such unfortunate event takes place. Very sorry to hear about this. I know what it's like to be across the ocean and be told that someone you love has passed away. All the best to the family.

At risk of sounding discompassionate, I am too poor right now NOT to ask this:
 
I have tickets for the Chicago show... I got an email saying refunds are available "at point of purchase" The tickets were bought on etix and strictly state "NO REFUNDS" Does that mean I'm out the money for the two tickets, or is there a way around that?!
 
I only ask because I could use that money to eat for a week, as I kinda "robbed peter to pay paul" to even buy them in the first place. I only let myself buy em cuz I was taking my girlfriend for both of our birthdays...
 
Please don't think me insensitive for asking. undecided It's entirely understandable why it was cancelled, and my deepest sympathies go out to SWilson and family. <3
 
Edited:
Forget I said anything... etix just emailed me on their own to tell me they refunded it. Figures.
