Fandemic Tour is the new touring comic convention experience created by ex-Wizard CEO John Macaluso. Its inaugural show was intended to be in two weeks time at the NRG Center in Houston with Walking Dead stars Norman Reed and Jeffrey Dean Morgan topping the bill, with comic book stars Neal Adams and Michael Golden joining the crowd.
In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, and the destruction, threat to life and property and people being evacuated from their homes, that venue is currently being used to house those who have had to flee. And there has been also been concern from Fandemic attendees and vendors as to what that means for their own plans.
The show has issued the following statement that will be postponed until the first weekend in December. But that there will be full refunds made to those who cannot make the new dates.
First and foremost, Fandemic Tour is deeply saddened by the tragic and unprecedented situation that has unfolded in Houston and across the Gulf Coast region of Texas over the past several days as a result of Hurricane Harvey. Our thoughts continue to be with the people in Texas, and Fandemic Tour wants everyone to know that the show will go on with new dates from December 1-3, 2017. In the immediate time-frame, the NRG Center has been transformed into a shelter for evacuees, and it has understandably cancelled all events through the original Fandemic Tour weekend of September 15-17.
Fandemic Tour will honor all tickets purchased up to this point for the new weekend in December. Additionally, we will fully refund tickets purchased for those who are unable to attend during the new dates. Please stay tuned to Fandemic Tour social media for information on how to request a refund if you are unable to attend. We are doing everything in our power to bring the same great celebrity lineup to Fandemic Tour that was previously promised, schedules permitting. We have already received confirmations from most of our guests from the original lineup. We will be posting the new complete guest list as soon as possible. Visit the Fandemic Tour website (www.fandemictour.com) to see which guests remain committed to attending in December.
Rest assured that Fandemic Tour will continue to put the fans first.
