SURREY — Sorry, kids, the Mini Pop Kids aren’t coming here to perform, after all.

A concert/dance party featuring the group of young singers was set for Monday, Feb. 12 at Surrey’s Bell Performing Arts Centre, but the show has been cancelled due to “a transportation and routing issue,” according to a post on the theatre’s website.

“They look forward to coming back to Surrey one day to perform their hits for their awesome fans,” says the post.

For ticket refunds, call the venue box office, 604-507-6355.

The group’s “high-energy, interactive concert” is designed to “give every boy, girl, and anyone of any age the chance to party like a POPstar,” featuring kid-friendly versions of hit songs by Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars and others.

Victoria and Kelowna are the other two B.C. stops on the Winnipeg-based group’s winter 2018 tour of Canada.
