Caesars Postpones April Shows And Cancels Hotel Reservations All Month

The labour dispute at Caesars Windsor has forced the gaming, entertainment and hotel to close for the rest of April.

All Colosseum shows this month are now postponed indefinitely and hotel reservations to April 30 are cancelled.  

It affects Buddy Guy originally set for this Friday, David Foster April 15 and Terry Fator April 21.

Caesars is telling patrons who hold on to their tickets they will be honoured when the shows are rescheduled.

Refunds will be handled by the method originally used to make the purchase.

Caesars Entertainment Regional President Kevin Laforet says "It was a very difficult decision to postpone the remainder of April concerts and events and cancel hotel reservations."

He explains they wanted to give patrons advance notice in case they wanted to make alternate plans.
