Cirque du Soleil gives update on 'OVO' tour

Officials with Cirque du Soleil gave an update Wednesday on their tour stop in Cincinnati that has been plagued by high water at Coney Island.

All shows since Friday have been cancelled, and will continue to be cancelled until Sunday, May 1.

Officials said about 85 percent of tickets were sold before the cancellations started coming.

If the river continues to recede, crews will spend a day or two cleaning up. The artistic team is scheduled to begin resetting the tent on Friday.

They have added an additional show on May 10 at 8 p.m.

Officials say they have insurance for lost revenue due to the cancellations.

Those who have tickets to cancelled shows should receive a letter for free tickets. Any questions should be directed to 1-800-450-1480. The show will be in Cincinnati until May 15.
