SPB announced on March 29 that the Andy Grammer concert was canceled due to “extremely low ticket sales.”

According to an email, the refund process has just begun. Tickets sold through Ticketmaster will be refunded that way.

However, the email noted they have not decided how tickets purchased through the CSA ticket window would be refunded.

Students are advised not to go to the CSA ticket window for this reason, and are encouraged to wait for further email notification about how to collect their refunds.

SPB promised that all ticket sales would end in a refund, though this process could take up to two months.

The concert was set to take place on April 15 at Meadow Brook Ampitheatre.

This venue can hold over 7,000 individuals.

Tickets were sold to OU students for $10 a piece. After continuous low ticket sales, anyone from any school with a valid student ID could get a ticket for the reduced $10 price.

This is the second concert in three years to be canceled. In the 2013-14 academic year, Jason Derulo canceled his planned concert on campus.

Last year’s concert, Iggy Azalea, sold out the Ampitheatre.

The SPB apologized in the email, hoping the canceled event wouldn’t discourage students from attending future programming.
