During Dada Life's show this past weekend sources confirmed that Dada Land was shut down by the riot police. Originally we heard rumors that the venue was overcrowded and that people had rushed the gates, but now Dada Life has given the specifics on really what had happened. Here's what they had to say:
“As promised, we wanted to address the cancellation of the show on Saturday night and give out some details on the refund process and the make up show that we’re planning.
So what happened? There were ongoing issues with the logistics and production of the show, hence us having to move the venue on Thursday morning to keep the show and then we had continuing issues on the night of the show. It seems the fire marshall closed down the event after a gate was broken through.
This wasn’t a promoter error and nor was the venue oversold… we were told the venue was at capacity, when it clearly wasn’t and we weren’t allowed to let anyone else in… It was cold, rainy, and most of you had been waiting out there for hours… the fence got broken… guess we were all Born To Rage!
So here’s what’s going to happen… we are going to play a Make Up show in the South Florida area on December 28th. The venue is still TBD as we’re working out the details (and making sure the same issues don’t happen again) but it will be on that date.
If you bought a ticket to the Compound show on Nov 23 in Miami then keep hold of your ticket and it will function as your ticket to the event on Dec 28th… no need to do anything else. If you bought a physical ticket and still have it, bring that along. If you had your physical ticket taken at the venue go HERE and see the instructions.. make sure to tell them you want a ticket to the new event rather than a refund.
