Hub Productions Announces Rescheduled Tru Blood Convention!

February 7, 2012

Aussie Fans Have a New Confirmed Date:

Tru Blood 2: A Second Bite Australian Convention Promo PosterJuly 28th and 29th, 2012 (Sydney and Melbourne, respectively) are the new dates set for the Tru Blood convention that was cancelled last year. Details can be found here. Disappointed Aussie fans missed out on seeing Sam Trammell, Nelsan Ellis and Joe Manganiello in Septemeber last year due to the stars having to cancel close to the event date.

The first guest confirmed for this year is Sam Trammell, who plays the wonderful Sam Merlotte. Trammell is a big fan of Aussie beaches, so it will be interesting to see if he will stick around a little longer to check out the waves again.

Fans who had already purchased for the 2011 event can rest assured that they need do nothing but wait by their mailbox for their tickets to arrive. But if you are a Sydney or Melbourne resident (or visiting during the month of July) and would still like to purchase tickets, you can still do so. Simply head on over to The Hub Productions website here and order your tickets.

I attended the 2010 event and was lucky enough to meet Sam Trammell, Kristin Bauer van Straten, Todd Lowe and John Billingsley.  Are there any other fans who attended this event, or will be attending the next one in July? Please let us know in the comments below — maybe we could even meet up on the day!

Hub Productions to Postpone Aussie Tru Blood 2 Convention

August 30, 2011

Rescheduled for 2012:

Hub Productions - Tru Blood 2 ConventionNow for all the Aussie fans of HBO’s True Blood, I have some bad news. If you were planning to attend next month’s Tru Blood 2 convention being run by Hub Productions, they have just issued the following statement via email:

We’re sorry to have to contact you with this news, but if you haven’t already seen on the website, we’ve regretfully had to make the decision to postpone our upcoming Tru Blood 2 event. This morning we received the news that all three of our announced guests have had to cancel their appearances at this time. Sam has become a father to twins, Nelsan has just signed on for an amazing new film project, which unfortunately conflicts with our dates, and poor Joe Manganiello was injured on set yesterday. He specifically asked us to relay the message that he’s devastated that he can’t fly and will not be able to join us, as he was very much looking forward to coming out to Australia.

A similar statement has been issued on their website, and can be viewed here.

But don’t despair too much, the event is being postponed, rather than cancelled. Hub Productions is hoping to bring this event to Melbourne and Sydney in 2012. Charlaine Harris (who herself had to cancel her 2010 appearence due to the death of her mother) is confirmed as being able to attend in 2012. It is as yet unconfirmed as to whether the original line up of Sam Trammell, Nelsan Ellis and Joe Manganiello will still be attending.

Make sure you check in here or Hub Productions often for updates.
