Following a mishap that leaked tickets for J.K. Rowling’s New York event early, Jazz at Lincoln Center has confirmed that the event will be moved to a much a larger venue.
‘A Conversation with J.K. Rowling and Ann Patchett’ will be moved to the David H. Koch Theater, a venue of Lincoln Center and one that can accomodate 2,500 people. The event will be held on the same day and time, October 16 at 8:00 P.M and all tickets purchased will be honored. However, those who purchased their tickets on September 9 will have to re-purchase them. If you are one of these early ticket holders, Lincoln Center will either notify you either by phone or by e-mail with instructions on how to re-purchase the tickets.
Here is Jazz at Lincoln Center’s full statement regarding the issue:
On Sunday, September 9, Jazz at Lincoln Center’s ticketing system was breached and an unauthorized link to purchase tickets to the J.K. Rowling The Casual Vacancy event on October 16 was distributed online. This breach did not result in the breach of purchasers’ personal information. In order to accommodate customers who purchased tickets on September 9 as well as customers who purchased tickets on September 10, Jazz at Lincoln Center has secured the David H. Koch Theater at 20 Lincoln Center as the new location for the event. Each customer who purchased tickets prior to the official on-sale date and time will be contacted directly by Jazz at Lincoln Center to process tickets for the event at the new location. The event remains sold out. At this time, only customers who purchased tickets on September 9 and 10 will be accommodated. Although neither Little, Brown and Company nor J.K. Rowling are responsible for this situation they were keen to make sure that no person who legitimately bought a ticket was left disappointed, and are delighted this matter has been resolved in this way and apologize for any confusion that may have been caused in the meantime. Jazz at Lincoln Center apologizes too for any inconvenience and looks forward to welcoming everyone to the David H. Koch Theater on October 16.
