Comedian Brian Regan will give a free show at Heinz Hall, replacing the Oct. 8 performance he postponed in the wake of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra’s ongoing labor dispute. The date of the rescheduled performance has not been set.
“I understand that postponing my October 8 show caused some problems for many of my fans and I would like to make it up to you,” Mr. Regan said in a press release. “So I am going to reschedule the show and perform for you for free.”
While the rescheduled show is free, the box office will give priority to people who bought tickets for the originally scheduled show. People who held onto their tickets after the show was postponed can use those to gain admission to the rescheduled performance, and they will receive refunds after the show has taken place. The Heinz Hall box office will contact those who already requested refunds and offer them free admission to the rescheduled show. And audience members who cannot make that performance are asked to call the box office at 412-392-4900 about refunds.
“The new show date is to be determined but fans will be alerted as soon as a new date is confirmed,” the Heinz Hall release said.
PSO musicians went on strike Sept. 30. The organization has canceled orchestra performances through Nov. 18, and a concert featuring Elvis Costello and the Imposters, scheduled for tonight, also was canceled.
