Atlantic City’s newest hotel and casino has canceled a Pat Benatar concert minutes before the show was to start. An “unforeseen technical issue” is blamed for the cancellation at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Thursday night (July 26).
Benatar, Neil Giraldo and Rick Springfield were scheduled to perform before the casino posted on Facebook the show would not go on, leaving people in line waiting to go into the venue. Officials did not say what the technical issue was.
Due to an unforeseen technical issue, tonight’s concert featuring Pat Benatar, Neil Giraldo, and Rick Springfield has been cancelled. We regret the inconvenience to the artists and their fans. Ticket holders can receive a full refund at point of purchase.

Ticketholders can receive a refund at the point of purchase. Hard Rock opened last month in what had been the Trump Taj Mahal.
