Bill Cosby Offers Refunds For Tarrytown Music Hall Shows

Bill Cosby refunds tickets and resigned from Temple University’s board of trustees

1203-bill-cosby-music-hall-2TARRYTOWN — Comedian Bill Cosby is still performing the “Far From Finished” tour date at The Tarrytown Music Hall located at 13 Main Street, Tarrytown, NY next weekend but respectfully the comic is offering refunds to ticket holders who don’t want to go.

The Journal News reports that Cosby’s two Dec. 6 shows at the Tarrytown Music Hall in Westchester County are going on as scheduled. But one-third of the tickets to Bill Cosby’s previously sold-out shows at the Tarrytown Music Hall on Dec. 6 had been returned for refunds as of noon Monday, as rape and sexual-abuse allegations swirl around the comedian.

Ticket holders got an email from the box office Friday offering refunds.

The email said Cosby’s management would reimburse patrons who don’t want to attend the show.

Bjorn Olsson, the executive director of the Tarrytown Music Hall, previously told CBS2 cancelling the shows wouldn’t really hurt Cosby financially since the comedian will get paid regardless if he performs or not because of his contract.

Cosby shows in some other states have been canceled after women came forward alleging he sexually assaulted them. But more than 30 shows remain on his schedule through May 2015.

Fans who still want to see the 77-year-old comedian who may not have been able to purchase tickets due to show being sold out, can now buy tickets at all three price points: $49, $79 and $125.

Foxwoods Resort Casino has indefinitely postponed Cosby’s concert appearance that was scheduled for January, CBS New York reported,

Cosby has denied the allegations against him.

In unrelated news Bill Cosby has resigned from Temple University’s board of trustees a statement released by the university on Monday.

“I have always been proud of my association with Temple University,” Cosby said in the statement. “I have always wanted to do what would be in the best interests of the university and its students. As a result, I have tendered my resignation from the Temple University Board of Trustees.”

Cosby has had a seat on the board for 32 years.

  1. I give Mr. Cosby alot of respect. He could have been on some Ernie Davis tip and not step down even though unlike Davis, Cosby cant be convicted or sued from these allegations because of the statute of limitations but did because its in the best interest of the University and he refunded tickets he didn’t have to because his contract states if Tarrytown Music Hall cancelled his shows that were sold out they had to pay him in full anyway. And those in Mt Vernon have a mayor who pled guilty of two counts of tax evasion and refuses to see stepping down would be in best interest of the city. A clear example of the ethical and absolutely wrong way to go about things.
