RTB update:

Sup, y’all.

I know you’ve been waiting to hear confirmation re: rumours of tonight’s show being cancelled & we have been on the horn all morning trying to get to the bottom of everything.

The Rock The Bells date for Winnipeg has been cancelled indefinitely.

We have been looking forward to seeing this show as much as you have and it wasn’t easy hearing the show was cancelled but we can provide some details as to what exactly happened…

Thu, Aug 20
*artists attempted to cross the border in Saskatchewan from the US;
*immigration problems resulted in artists being turned away by Canada Border Services Agency in Saskatchewan;
*artists’ management contacted The Union (event promotion company we partnered with) indicating they were unable to cross;
*The Union asked artists’ management to please get their paperwork in order because there is still a show in Winnipeg;
*artists’ management agreed to get all immigration in order & still do Winnipeg;
*we were informed by The Union that Saskatoon show was indeed cancelled but that Winnipeg gig was still going forward;
*two hrs after that conversation, artists’ management contacted The Union indicating the Winnipeg date “wasn’t worth all the trouble” & would proceed to Minneapolis for the Aug 23 gig;

Fri, Aug 21
*we contacted The Union to confirm if show is going forward & they indicated show was cancelled
*we contacted all ticket retailers to refund all tickets

We apologize to you all for this situation. Unfortunately, this is not unusual. Rap shows are cancelled on the regular in all markets because of artists &/or management failing to get their immigration papers in order – especially when their are prior convictions present.

Thanks are due to TUB, Music Trader & Into The Music for being our ticket retailers, our promotions team (street & online) for the hard work they put in & most especially big thanks to all of you that purchased tickets & were willing to support this show. You will be able to return to point of purchase for full refunds (please go to the retailer you purchased from directly).


Bell tolls for Winnipeg

Rock The Bells Club Tour hits Pyramid.

Guerilla Union‘s massive hip hop tour has never reached city limits until now.

Rock The Bells‘s only Canadian dates this year are in the usual bigger markets: Toronto, Vancouver and Calgary. For the first time ever, smaller markets like Saskatoon and Winnipeg will have a chance to experience the international touring festival with the Rock The Bells Club Tour, which arrives in Winnipeg on Friday, August 21 at Pyramid Cabaret.

The lineup consists of Slum Village, Slaughterhouse, Supernatural and Pete Rock. SV’s participation was in doubt after founding member Baatin‘s passing this past long weekend but the group confirmed that they will continue with their RTB dates and performed at the Vancouver (Aug 1) and Calgary (Aug 2) dates.

None of the confirmed acts have ever played in Winnipeg but two members of Slaughterhouse have: Royce Da 5’9 and Joe Budden. The supergroup is rounded out by Crooked I and Joell Ortiz. The group have the rap industry buzz locked as anticipation builds for their first album.

Supernatural has long been considered one of the strongest freestyle rappers in the industry and has been involved with RTB since 2004. His battles with Craig G and MC Juice are underground classics and he is bound to unleash some of that lyrical fire at the Pyramid.

Pete Rock really needs no introduction. He’s Pete Rock. Producer extraordinaire. DJ king. Rap icon. ’nuff said.

Tickets are 32.50 + agency fees and will be available at Ticketmaster outlets, Pyramid Cabaret, Into The Music, Music Trader and The Urban Bakery.

The Rock The Bells Club Tour is proudly brought to you by The Union, Ill Movements, UMFM and Bundown Sound System.
