In the red!
Organiser of the HOTT 95.3 FM Outrageous In Red show has reported that high costs and low ticket sales resulted in the show’s two headliners, Trinidadians Destra Garcia and Denise Belfon, not performing.
If funds permit, said Dwayne Grazette, he will refund or “make it up” to paying patrons who came out to Kensington Oval for the event, billed as LLB: Ladies Love Bacchanal.
“At the end of the day the numbers in there were not good at all for the budget that the show was and [if they performed] it would have put me more in the hole,” Grazette told the DAILY NATION yesterday. “I would have had to pay the other half of the money [for them to perform] and that money could have gone to offset other costs.”
He added:?“If I have the money I would probably [give a refund] because at the end of the day it is not fair to the patrons. I will make it up to them sometime.”
Many in the crowd at Kensington could be heard expressing their disappointment at not seeing the two Trinidad acts, with some querying about a refund. A number of them later took to social media to vent their frustrations.
