RAPID CITY, S.D. — Mr. 305 will no longer be visiting the 605.

Miami-based rapper Pitbull is cancelling his concert at The Monument scheduled for December 2. The cancellation follows the initial postponement of the concert from its original date of October 16.

According to Priscilla Dominguez, Director of Corporate Sales & Marketing at The Monument, “There are always multiple things that play a role in cancellation, but there wasn’t one specific reason given. There is hope that something could be worked out on a future tour.”

“They were willing to postpone again but we would have to catch their show on tour and we wouldn’t be able to see what date it’s going to be and I think the fair thing to do, let’s give everybody their money back,” said Executive Director at The Monument, Craig Baltzer. “We’ll continue to work with Pitbull. We’re going to get them en route on tour sometime later. It was the right thing to do.”

Tickets bought online will be refunded automatically. If you paid with cash or check at the box office, staffers can handle the refund at that same location.

The Monument Crew is glad to have hosted Zach Brown Band over this past weekend and they look forward to events still to come.

“You worked hard to build something, that is ideally and theoretically supposed to operate this way, and this is how the crowds are supposed to act, and this is how the shows are supposed to react to it. And when it worked out exactly the way you planned on it, there is a lot of pride,” said Baltzer.

The venue recently announced Chicago, Parker McCollum, Toby Mac, and Morgan Wallen as draws to the new Summit Arena in addition to many events happening throughout the facility as a whole.
