Vince Neil’s second show of 2021 on June 18th now cancelled

Mötley Crüe frontman Vince Neil will be taking a little extra time between gigs as the singer is no longer performing as part of the Rockin’ The Downs Summer Concert Series in Batavia, New York, USA on June 18, 2021 as originally scheduled. A few weeks ago, Neil made headlines all around the world when he decided to cut his solo performance short at the Boone Iowa River Valley Festival in Boone, Iowa, USA on May 29, 2021 after announcing to the crowd that “my fucking voice is gone.”

The following message was posted in part on Batavia Downs‘ Facebook page back on June 8, 2021:

Batavia Downs Gaming & Hotel announced today that due to circumstances beyond their control, the concert on June 18th, 2021 will no longer feature Vince Neil. Batavia Downs hopes to welcome Vince to Batavia Downs next summer.

On June 18th, 2021, Batavia Downs will now welcome Mark Farner’s American Band to the Rockin’ The Downs Summer Concert Series.

Legendary all-American frontman and guitarist Mark Farner was the engine that pulled his band down the tracks to the top of the charts. Known for performing such hits as “I’m Your Captain (Closer to Home),” “We’re An American Band,” a recut of “The Loco-Motion,” and “Some Kind of Wonderful, Mark has been delighting audiences for over 40 years.

Please note that tickets purchased for the Vince Neil concert will still be honored on that date. Those wishing for a refund may do so through their point of purchase. Info can be found inside of your ticket confirmation email. Tickets purchased at the Lucky Treasures gift shop may be refunded during normal gift shop hours. *Must provide ticket in order to be refunded*”
