Yeah it had to happen some day. August 4th 5th and 6th i was working at a local amphetheater for a 3 day rock fest. Small place, holds 3k maybe. Brian Burkell the promoter took off w/ all the money from ticket sales and none of the big bands were able to play. Some of the headliners who didnt play were Cheap Trick, Mark Farner (Grand Funk Railroad), Savoy Brown, Randy Bachman (BTO, Guess Who) and there were 4 others that i cant remember. So who did play? Dennis DeYoung of Stix, Forigner, The Outlaws, and a bunch of tribute bands. People payed $300 for weekend passes to the show and didnt get refunds. Brian skipped out on us and a guy named Justin was left in charge. Justin and i went and talked to Cheap Trick and tried to get them to play but they just wouldnt have it. If anyone knows about this Brian Burkell person let me or ur local cops know cuz theres a bounty on his head for fraud and a lot of people want to sue him including the bands.
Heres what they said about it in the papers
