More on cancelled MSG show!

Eddie McLoughlin, president of Irish Ropes Promotions, has commented on the cancellation of the March 16th show in WaMu Theater at Madison Square Garden. “I had a choice of losing $50,000 by canceling when we did, or to potentially lose $250,000 to go ahead. I was not under any contractual obligation to any of the fighters and chose to take the lesser hit….when I decided to pull the plug on the show, 10 days before the scheduled event, we had sold only 1500 tickets, approximately $130,000 worth, compared to $400,000 at the same time for our previous show (“Erin Go Brawl”) there. Bars that normally sell 300-400 tickets had sold only 20-30 for this one and nobody was going in or calling for tickets. It was inevitable and although I was terribly disappointed, I really didn’t have much of a choice about canceling the show.” McLoughlin said the poor economy in New York and Ireland played a part in poor advance ticket sales, but stated the “real reason” was difficulties in dealing with headliner Andy Lee and his team.
