While O’Reilly’s PR team says the cancellation is due to a “scheduling conflict,” a representative from the center told WDRB originally that it was due to “sluggish” ticket sales. David Holland, the communications director for the Kentucky Center, told LEO Weekly that they could not reveal their ticket sales for the event to the public, so you’ll just have to draw your own conclusions.
While Bill O’Reilly’s slide in popularity and ratings is unfortunate for those who were looking forward to entering the “No-Spin Zone” this weekend, I’m sure there’s plenty of other fun things to do in Louisville. Perhaps you can have dinner at the Falafel House just down the road from the Kentucky Center, then take in a performance of “Dracula” right across the street at Actors Theatre? They do it live, too.
