Musician Taj Mahal Cancels Concert at UM

June 05, 2015

MISSOULA – Musician Taj Mahal canceled his July 22 concert previously scheduled at the Dennison Theatre at the University of Montana. UM Productions will refund all tickets purchased.

“For decades, Taj Mahal has been committed to giving fans the most of himself through music, both on stage and off,” his promoter wrote in a statement to UM Productions. “This has been his love and his life and it is with regret that the Maestro finds it necessary, at this time, to take a much-needed break from the demands of his constant touring schedule. This brief hiatus will allow the time to recharge his health and vitality.”

There is no current makeup date for the Missoula concert. Ticket purchasers who used a credit card will be automatically refunded. Those who used cash or check should contact the Adams Center Box Office at 406-243-4051.

“Taj promises to be back in August with refreshed and renewed health allowing him to continue his high-energy performances well into the future,” the statement said. “He hopes that you, his friends and fans, will understand. Taj looks forward to seeing you all as soon as he is back on the road.”
