SOUTH BEND, Indiana - The South Bend Cubs announced today that the Pitbull concert cancelled earlier this summer has been rescheduled for Friday evening, August 16, at Four Winds Field.
"We're excited to announce this news," said Joe Hart, President of the South Bend Cubs. "Pitbull and Andrew Berlin have been working hard to put this together since the first concert was cancelled due to severe weather in Florida. Neither one of these two gentlemen were going to disappoint the fans."
"Nothing is more important to us than our fans," said Berlin, owner of the South Bend Cubs. "We were going to make this happen, whatever it took. And so was Pitbull. All of us have worked feverishly to coordinate the many details of rescheduling something like this so quickly."
Pitbull, who lives in Florida, was unable to fly to South Bend on the night of the original June 16 concert, due to severe weather. Berlin broke the disappointing news to fans that night onstage and promised he'd get the concert rescheduled as soon as possible.
"Now, on August 16, Pitbull's going to put on an awesome show for fans in this region," Berlin said. "I'm one of them. And I'm really looking forward to it."
"To thank our fans for their patience, we're giving complimentary tickets to South Bend Cubs home games when someone purchases a rescheduled Pitbull concert ticket," added Hart. "Every concert ticket purchased will receive one ballgame ticket good for any Monday through Thursday game during the month of August."
