Replacing Vince Neil on June 18

Batavia Downs Gaming & Hotel announced Tuesday that, due to circumstances beyond its control, the concert on June 18 will no longer feature Vince Neil. The venue said it hopes to welcome Neil back to Batavia Downs next summer.

Mark Farner’s American Band will now perform June 18 at the “Rockin’ The Downs” summer concert series.

Legendary all-American frontman and guitarist Farner was the engine that pulled his band down the tracks to the top of the charts. Known for performing such hits as “I’m Your Captain (Closer to Home),” “We’re An American Band,” a recut of “The Loco-Motion,” and “Some Kind of Wonderful,” he has been delighting audiences for over 40 years.

Tickets purchased for the Neil concert will still be honored on that date. Those wishing for a refund may do so through their point of purchase. Information can be found inside of the ticket confirmation email. Tickets purchased at the Lucky Treasures gift shop may be refunded during normal gift shop hours.

Tickets are available for Mark Farner’s American Band on www.BataviaConcerts.com.
