Default FANFEST - A message from JOHNNY 2 BAD

Hello ALL UB FANS

We have just received the bad news that The Fanfest organisers are pulling out of the arrangements after a poor response from members.

We have worked tirelessly for many weeks to put on a SPECTACULAR show in a GREAT venue with SPECIAL GUESTS and we have superb UB40 raffle prizes for you too!

This has cost the band over a £1000 from our own pockets. We have now lost the £400 from the fanfest organisers....
BUT WE WILL STILL PUT ON THE SHOW for ANYONE WHO LOVES UB40. tickets just £5.

UB40 fans have many options for the weekend of September 9th (see the Fanfest organisers for details) and we hope that some of you will come join us on Friday for the show at:

The Roadhouse, Lifford Lane, Stirchley, Birmingham B30 3DZ.
http://www.roadhousevenue.co.uk

All the details for location, time, and tickets are on our website at
http://www.johnny2bad.biz

We wish the Fanfest organisers success and all UB40 fans a great 25 years celebration.

Best wishes from all at Johnny 2 Bad

sorry to hear you may be losing a bit of money ojn it but unfortunately it's one of those things and no-ones fault. if the fests postponed then we'll still all get to see you in october.

Think you've worded your post a bit weirdly though - makes it sound like fanfest organisers have swindled you out of £400 lol. Which as we all know is not the case. They have simply offered this weekend to all of us and if not enough of us can go then obviously theres nothing they can do. This is no-ones fault at all.

No ... Not at all! I never suggested anybody "swindling" anyone! It's just that we were working on a budget of £400 and making up the shortfall ourselves. Now that the £400 is no longer there we are obviously even further away from covering our £1000 outlay. Still. that's showbiz!

"eh didnt think anything was deffinate yet?"

Music venues and festivals have to be organised and booked well in advance of the day. It's not possible, without severely limiting your options, to delay arrangements until a few weeks before the date.
There are very many people involved in the chain of events and they expect to be given precise and definite timings. If one link goes awry the whole domino set crashes!!!

Good luck to you in whatever decision you come to.
