XPR Augusta, an leisure live performance and pageant sequence set to debut in the course of the week of the Masters Tournament, has been formally canceled.
C4 Live, the internet hosting manufacturing firm for the occasion, launched an announcement Wednesday asserting the cancellation. This determination comes after manufacturing was halted and ticket gross sales had been suspended earlier in March.
“This was an extremely difficult decision for all of us at C4 Live. But it was made with the best interests of our fans, talent, employees, volunteers, sponsors, partners and the community at heart,” C4 Live Managing companions Micheal Perry and Greg Costello stated in an announcement.
Blake Shelton, Nelly, Pitbull, Jimmy Buffett and Tim McGraw had been scheduled to carry out.
Geotechnical engineers discovered structural points at Lake Olmstead Stadium, the proposed web site for the occasion and former house of the Augusta GreenJackets Minor League Baseball workforce. Overall stability of the grounds and extra research of the infield and outfield had been carried out, in keeping with C4 Live.
XPR Augusta unveiled its web site plans throughout a media occasion in September 2021. The occasion would function a “marquee” look with retail and meals pop ups. C4 Live dedicated to a 10 12 months refurbishment plan and spending $1.7 million to host year-round leisure occasions.
“Unfortunately, we cannot move forward safely at this time. Although we are heartbroken to make this announcement amid so much excitement for XPR Augusta, there is simply nothing more important to us than the safety of everyone involved,” in keeping with an announcement from C4 Live.
XPR Augusta has plans to make its official debut in the course of the week of the Masters Tournament in 2023 and to proceed revitalization efforts in Augusta.
“We are so grateful to everyone in Augusta, including our sponsors and partners from the city of Augusta and Augusta Economic Development Authority, for your continued support of our vision to make Lake Olmstead Stadium the destination for live music and entertainment,” C4 Live stated in an announcement. “Your understanding as we work to resolve these issues means the world to us.”
