Due to a “medical emergency,” comedian Matt Rife’s sold-out performances at IU Auditorium had to be canceled



Bloomington, Indiana – Comedian Matt Rife had canceled his two sold-out, previously rescheduled gigs at the IU Auditorium in Bloomington on Wednesday night.

A statement from Indiana University stated that a “unexpected medical emergency” caused the cancellation of the ProbleMATTic World Tour shows, which were slated for Wednesday at 7 and 10 p.m.
The events did not take place as planned; they were rescheduled for this week because to “unforeseen scheduling circumstances,” with Valentine’s Day falling on February 14. It was apparently announced twenty minutes after the 7 p.m. show was supposed to start.

IU Auditorium did not provide more details regarding the medical conditions that led to the cancellation in its statement. However, they did state that a refund will be provided.

“Ticket purchasers will be refunded completely to their original methods of payment and will be reflected within 30 days,” IU Auditorium said. “To be eligible for a refund, tickets must have been purchased through IU Auditorium or Ticketmaster directly.”

Customers can contact IU Auditorium by email at [email protected], by phone at (812) 855-1103, or online at with any questions. There was no more information given.

Rife apologized for the cancellation on social media:

“INDIANA: I’m so f***ing sorry, but due to a last minute medical emergency i have to reschedule our shows tonight (again),” Rife said. “I’ve been doing 40+ shows a month for a year and half and never had to do something like this, I’m so so sorry, i hope you understand and i love you so much.”
