Billy Corgan releases statement regarding low attendance at NWA Hard Times 2 PPV

Saturday night’s NWA Hard Times 2 PPV was listed on Event Brite as “sold out.” However, this caused confusion when there were so many empty seats once the event began.

Fans watching at home may have seen the middle section was largely full of masked fans, but the sections to the right and left completely empty.

According to PWInsider, Billy Corgan was informed on November 30 that since GPB Studios is government-funded they were being held to a more restrictive standard, and would not allow more than 90 fans to attend. There were a number of fans that were given refunds as a result.

NWA President Billy Corgan issued the following statement to PWInsider:

“To say the ongoing pandemic has been a challenge in running live events is an understatement, as it has for anyone who has been adversely affected by what remains this ongoing health and safety crisis. And though this latest setback will not deter us from going ‘on with the show’, we appreciate your understanding today so as to not have to turn anyone away at the door; as this is certainly a circumstance beyond our control.”

The NWA will also tape new episodes of Powerrr on Sunday and Monday at GPB Studios.
