According to Ticketmaster (shown above), the streets and Twitterverse, fans in Washington, D.C. will not be "rocking the bells" with Kid Cudi, J Cole, A$AP Mob or Wu-Tang Clan at RFK Stadium this weekend. Sources say the annual concert was reportedly cancelled due to poor ticket sales.
Although Chinyere Hubbard, the vice president for communications and marketing of Events DC, RFK's operator has confirmed the cancellation, we're still waiting on an official statement from Guerrilla Union (the promoters of Rock The Bells).
Also, speculation looms over the New York dates (Oct 4-5th) but we find it hard to believe that promoters can't sell tickets in New York.
We send our regrets to anyone in the DMV area who had their mind set on seeing Ol' Dirty Bastard's hologram.

It’s extremely unfortunate that we can’t complete the last half of the 10th Anniversary Rock the Bells tour. We did everything in our power to save the show. Unfortunately, the financial loss would have been devastating. This festival has been ten years in the making. I am truly sorry we could not produce the show for all the fans who did buy their ticket in support of.”
