Motorokr Fest ’08 – Goo Goo Dolls in Lima?

August 4, 2008 — 3 Comments

**EDIT** They’re NOT coming. Check the comments~ xD

Okay, seems like I have been totally out of the loop here because I just found out that Motorokr Fest will be over the weekend (this Saturday to be precise). I blame it all on poor promotion… the event has totally been overshadowed by cable commercials about the Olympics, which will begin one day before the fest.

I would have never EVER known about it, if I hadn’t subscribed to Eventful back when Bjork was coming… so I checked my email today, and saw this in the event list.

First reaction was, HOLY SHIT! Goo Goo Dolls is coming??? I was also surprised about Lifehouse~~~ I wonder if my cousin is going. *looks for him and asks*

OK, it’s official~~~ The event has the worst promotion EVER. My cousin just found out when I told him. **EDIT** My friend doesn’t know anything about the event either, HA!

Such a pity, really… most important, the company selling the tickets ( I didn’t EVEN KNOW that they existed. Never have seen a commercial by them, makes me iffy. It’s not like I love Teleticket (who also has a TERRIBLE website) – Wouldn’t Ticketmaster want to come??? I’ve gotten a pretty great service from them the times when I’ve bought tickets from them. xD

**EDIT** There’s also no info about the concert on Lifehouse’s Website or MySpace.
**EDIT** Molotov’s website shows the date as a CANCELED GIG.
**EDIT** No news if Cuarteto de Nos is/will or was ever on. Most likely that the event was entirely canceled, in which case organizers should update their online info.

**LAST EDIT** Just checked the Eventful site, and they finally put the cancelled tag on it.

  1. Actually, the Goo Goo Dolls are NOT going to be there. Info the promoter published was false. It’s on the official Goo’s site in the News section as well as on their myspace.

  2. Just a heads up – The GGDs won’t be at the festival. They posted on their MySpace that it was incorrect info.

  3. Thanks for the tip! *phew*

    In case anyone wonders~ Here’s the text.

    07.23.08: Peru
    We’ve gotten some information there’s been a show advertised for the 9th of August in Peru, we have not confirmed a show in Peru for August and please be aware even though there are tickets beings sold for this event, we are not appearing at this show. Sorry if anyone was caught up in this false situation. We hope to visit Peru at some point under different circumstances.

    See, another reason why NOT to trust TuEntrada
