Cosby concerts in suburban NY cancelled
TARRYTOWN, New York (AP) — Bill Cosby’s scheduled performance this weekend at a suburban venue north of New York City has been cancelled.
The Tarrytown Music Hall announced the cancellation Wednesday in an email to ticketholders. Some of Cosby’s shows in some other states have been postponed after women have come forward alleging the veteran comic sexually assaulted them. Cosby has denied the allegations.
Cosby had two sold-out engagements in Tarrytown on Saturday. Late last week, the promoter said people who didn’t want to attend could get refunds, and nearly half of the audience had reportedly requested one.
Tarrytown said Wednesday Cosby had agreed to cancel in consultation with the shows’ promoter.
