Two big thumbs down to Journey for canceling the Aug. 28 show at Save Mart Center. Why did the band members cancel? Basically, because they wanted to do a combined show with Santana at the Los Angeles Forum instead the same night, which will make them more money.
The show at the SMC was booked a couple of months ago; it seems they could have worked around it and had the Forum show on another night, or perhaps rescheduled the SMC show. And even if this was not possible, they made a commitment and they should have kept it, pure and simple.
Absent illness, death, or other personal tragedy, one should live up to one’s commitments. I am still a fan of Journey, but this cancellation is bush league.
