(Updated) - According to SR (Swedish Radio) The Race Legends at Anderstorp Raceway has been canceled due to too few tickets sold and debts totalling over 3 million SEK. (300000 €). Local businesses have been encouraged to buy tickets to support the whole happening, but apparently that hasn't worked out as planned. This means of course that the Roxette concert August 14 is canceled as well. Urban Stamming, CEO of The Race Legends, points to a press statement that will be published "tomorrow".
So far there's no information regarding ticket returns, but The Daily Roxette suggests you talk to whoever sold you the tickets.
Update: Now The Race Legends homepage says the race isn't canceled, but moved to next year. No tickets are refunded. The Daily Roxette highly doubts this goes for Roxette.
Update 2: Biljett.nu is still selling tickets to the gig since "it still hasn't been officially canceled." Biljett.nu also points to the statement that will be released tomorrow.
Update 3: "We need to have all relevant information before making a statement so if everybody could please just have some patience while we figure things out," comments Marie Dimberg, d&d management, manager of Roxette.
