An email alerting agents to the postponement of Woodstock 50's ticket on-sale has prompted fears that the 100,000-person anniversary concert will be canceled, although founder Michael Lang cast the fears as merely "rumors" late Friday.
"Woodstock is a phenomenon that for fifty years has drawn attention to its principles and also the rumors that can be attached to that attention," Lang, one of the co-founders of the original 1969 event in Bethel Woods, New York, said in a statement to Billboard, adding that fears of its demise were "just more rumors."
Earlier today, talent manager Amanda Phelan with Woodstock 50 talent-buyer Danny Wimmer Presents sent an email to agents representing acts at the concert in Watkins Glen, New York, explaining, "There is currently a hold on the Woodstock 50 on-sale date. We are waiting on an official press statement from Woodstock 50 regarding updated announce, ticket pricing, and overall festival information. We will get this information to you as soon as we receive it."
