PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Philadelphia Flyers open up play in the first round of the NHL playoffs Thursday night in New York, with the series shifting to Philadelphia for Game 3 of the best-of-seven series on Tuesday, April 22nd.
That happens to be the same night that pop-star Miley Cyrus was set to hold a concert at the Wells Fargo Center. So Miley’s sold-out show is being moved to a different date.
While local hockey fans are foaming at the mouth to see the Flyers hit the ice in the postseason, some parents may be a little upset that they’ll have to adjust their schedules to get to the show.
Ike Richman is spokesperson for Comcast-Specator, and he says the show was moved up a day, to Monday, April 21st:
“We’re very fortunate that Miley Cyrus was able to adjust her schedule and perform one night earlier. By notifying everybody now, hopefully everyone can rearrange their schedule or adjust it — it’s only one night different.”
Richman says things like this are pretty common, and it’s something they try to plan ahead for by leaving open dates on the schedule:
“To accommodate the National Hockey League, the Philadelphia Flyers, the NY Rangers, and the broadcast schedule. Fortunately for us, we had an available date one night earlier and fortunately for Miley Cyrus fans, so did she.”
Richman says that people who can’t rearrange their schedule should call the Wells Fargo Center box office as soon as possible.
The show is part of a 38 city, North American tour to promote Miley Cyrus’ Bangerz album, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart and the Digital Album Charts.
