EYECON: THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE POSTPONED

We are beyond saddened to have to let you guys know that both Jon Bernthal and Norman Reedus have had film issues arise that will prevent them from attending. Norman has suddenly been required to be in New York to complete voiceover work for a film he has just completed and Jon is now working on a movie and cannot leave Los Angeles during our weekend. This is not uncommon for actors to be forced to cancel personal appearances, though it rarely happens with headliners (this is only the second time in 6 years of conventions it has happened to us). We do know that Norman and his manager spoke for hours trying to come up with a solution so as not to disappoint his fans, he has had to cancel many upcoming events, not just ours.
We do have fully actualized contracts, however, every contract has a clause that states that their film and television commitments come first since an appearance is a one or two day job, while film and television is the work of their lives and must take priority. Other work rarely interferes since they don't film on weekends when our conventions take place, and also one of the reasons we chose Atlanta was because this is where the show is filmed and it would minimize the chances of cancellations, but alas, we were not spared.
That being said, rather than insult you guys by trying to bring in replacements (Andrew Lincoln isn't available), we have decided to postpone the event to a later date. Full refunds will be sent within 14 working days, though we are working on it immediately so it will most likely be way sooner. If you are due a refund and have not received it by June 10, please email eyeconsubmission@eyeconfla.com . If you would prefer to exchange your purchase to our upcoming Vampire Diaries convention, please let us know. For those who do exchange, we will add an autograph ticket of choice into your package as an amenity.
We were fully capable and ready to make this convention happen and meet all of our new friends. The staff was set, packages were made, decorations put together, and our anticipation was high, but we know that without Norman and Jon, it would be better for the fans to give refunds and postpone. We understand the excitement that goes into meeting with your favorite celebrities and know that you will be beyond upset with us for this and you may feel free to call either with questions or to simply yell at us. It is completely understandable. Just, please know that we played no part at all in their cancellations, the cancellations were communicated to us by their management due to the work commitments mentioned above.
We hope you can understand and value your patronage.
-Kenny, Autumn and the EyeCon Staff
