WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – A March appearance of Bill Cosby at the Warren Packard Music Hall has been postponed.

Packard Marketing and Sales Director Kelsey Rupert confirmed Tuesday that Cosby’s March 13th appearance has been “postponed.” Rupert said that a promoter of the show for Cosby notified Packard of the postponement. No reason was given for the postponement and no new date has been set.

Ticket holders can return to their point of purchase for a full refund.

Cosby recently canceled a Feb. 21 appearance at Heinz Hall in Pittsburgh. No reason was given for that cancellation either, but a recent petition was circulated in the Pittsburgh area calling for Cosby’s appearance to be postponed pending the outcome of ongoing sexual harassment allegations.

Most recently, Helen Gumpel made allegations Sunday at a Boston venue for Cosby’s show saying he made lewd gestures towards her in the late 1980s.

Since November, at least 15 women have come forward with claims Cosby sexually assaulted them decades ago. Most of the women say he drugged them before he assaulted them.

Cosby has vehemently denied the accusations and has not been charged with a crime.
