CALUMET, Mich. (WLUC) — Joe Nichols’ show at the Calumet Theater has been canceled.
A press release from theater officials said the Joe Nichols show was canceled, in quotes, due to circumstances beyond their control.
“We really want to get to Calumet,” said the Nichols Tour. “We’ll play the pipe as soon as we can get there, but at the moment we’re just not in a position to get there on November 5. We’re really sorry to have to cancel that date.”
New Calumet Theater Company President Dan Jamison says he wants to reassure Calumet Theater members and patrons that they are not only working to refund tickets purchased, but will go the extra mile to compensate for theater customers.
TV6 received footage suggesting the structure of the theater could be a contributing factor to the cancellation.

Jamison says the Calumet Theater will present a concert with the opening act of Chad Borgen and the Collective, as scheduled on November 5.
