Bam Margera Cancels Appearance At Geek’d Con Shreveport
Geek'd Con, Shreveport's comic con, is August 17th-19th, 2018 at the Shreveport Convention Center. The lineup includes WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley, the voice of Jack Skellington (Chris Sarandon), the first woman to ever portray Supergirl Helen Slater, and more. Tickets and full lineup are at GeekdCon.com
The announcement was made earlier this morning that due to circumstances outside of the control of Geek'd Con, Bam Margera and his co-stars of MTV's Jackass (Preston Lacy and Dave England) will be canceling their appearances at this year's event in Shreveport. The announcement comes just a few weeks before the show, which is set for August 17th, 18th, and 19th.
The notification, posted to the event's official Facebook page, says that celebrity guests are being approached to fill the now open spots on the lineup. But due to the short time-frame between now and the show, it's going to be a difficult task.
Geek's Con's 2018 lineup is still the biggest (and most expensive) the event has ever seen in Shreveport. With WWE Hall of Fame member Mick Foley, Jack Skellington from The Nightmare Before Christmas Chris Sarandon, the first woman to ever play Supergirl Helen Slater, TV's original Flash John Wesley Shipp, Erik Estrada from CHiPs, and a ton more including international cosplayers and comic book artists.
