Colombian Promoter Says He Canceled POSSESSED Concert After Selling Only 55 Tickets

According to, the November 12 concert in Bogota, Colombia by reactivated California death metal pioneers POSSESSED was canceled by the promoter, Invoking Productions, because “less than 55 tickets” were sold for the event.

“We are very grateful to those who supported us and we will refund the money for the tickets immediately,” the promoter said. “A thousand thanks to everyone for the support, but it is impossible to continue with the concert without the support of concert attendees.”

In a statement released earlier today, POSSESSED said about the Bogota concert cancelation, “We did everything in our power to come out and play this show for [the fans]. In preparation for this show, we are all actually in Los Angeles this minute practicing for this show and have even made special t-shirts for this Colombian November 12th show. We are really disappointed that this is not going to happen the way it was supposed to, since the whole band was really excited to go to Colombia to give you a killer show.”
