A planned concert celebrating music of the 1990s was canceled late last week with officials citing “scheduling conflicts” as the cause.

According to the Murphy Arts District website, the I Love the 90’s Tour that had been set for June 21 at the MAD Amphitheater was canceled because of scheduling conflicts. When asked if any more detail could be provided on why the concert was canceled, Bob Tarren, chief marketing officer for MAD, said “Actually I have no additional detail to provide. Unexpected scheduling conflict is the reason.”

Tarren said 95 percent of all ticket refunds had already been processed by Tuesday afternoon.

When the concert was first announced in March, it touted performances by ’90s artists such as Vanilla Ice, Salt-N-Pepa with Spinderella, Coolio, Tone Loc, Rob Base and Young MC.

The full message posted on the MAD website is:

“Due to scheduling conflicts, it is with regret that we must announce the cancellation of the concert scheduled for Thursday, June 21st at the MAD Amphitheater. The Murphy Arts District would like to extend their sincerest apologies for any inconvenience this will cause ticket holders. To anyone that bought tickets, we will provide refunds.

We would like to express our apologies again and hope that we see you at another MAD event!”
