From Mendes to New Kids, concert cancellations prove a costly gamble for fans

  From Mendes to New Kids, concert cancellations prove a costly gamble for fans TORONTO — First, Justin Bieber postponed his June concert in Toronto, then The Weeknd was sidelined by the Rogers network outage a few weeks later. Shawn Mendes pulled out of dates at the Scotiabank Arena several days before showtime, while the New Kids of the Block scrapped an appearance one week before. Concerts are roaring back after two years of pandemic restrictions in Canada, but for music fans who often travel from afar, the triumphant return is anything but certain.

at Messe München could get really full on Saturday: Up to 100,000 people are expected at the open-air concert by the Austrian singer Andreas Gabalier today. The appearance was actually planned as part of a “fan festival” in the summer of 2020, but was postponed several times due to restrictions by the Corona pandemic.

The supporting program has also been reduced: the amusement park announced in 2019 will not exist. Visitors can still go to the site at 12 noon, including a gastronomic offer with “food-truck mile”.

The Johanniter accident aid advised visitors to the concert to equip themselves with sunscreen and rain ponchos-and wear suitable shoes. "In the past, we spent the pavement in the past at Concerts by Andreas Gabalier because oat shoes had not yet run or the pumps caused the dirndl blister," said operations manager Markus Bauer.

Not all areas of the concert area are paved. In addition, a few kilometers could come together due to the footpaths from the subway or from the parking spaces to the Munich trade fair.
