“I do not see us having a Rock & Roll Rumble in April,” reads a statement on the Rock and Roll Rumble Facebook page from organizer Anngelle Wood. “Yesterday, I thought it to be irresponsible. Today, I find it impossible. There is just too much at stake.”
The preliminary rounds of this year’s Rumble were due to start the week of April 9, and wrap up on May 1. New dates for the annual Boston rock competition have not yet been announced, but it is confirmed that the Rumble is merely postponed and not cancelled for this year.
“We will have a #RUMBLE2020,” the statement adds. “You can count on it.”
