Walker Stalker Convention in Atlanta, Georgia recently had eight convention guest appearances cancelled, as announced by the guest’s appearance agency, Full Empire Promotions.
Walker Stalker Con is run by “Fan Fest Events” which also runs “Heroes & Villains” conventions. The Walker Stalker conventions focus on The Walking Dead cast members, but the event is not officially affiliated with AMC.
The guests cancelled were DYLAN MCDERMOTT, RILEY SCHMIDT, JEREMY DAVIES, AMY GUMENICK, ANDREW DIVOFF, MITCH PILEGGI, ANNABETH GISH, and WILLIAM B. DAVIS.
This was announced today via a Facebook post.
Walker Stalker recently cancelled their entire convention in Nashville, postponing it several months.
Today’s announcement read:
“CANCELLATIONS!! Walker Stalker Convention
Sadly we are forced to cancel DYLAN MCDERMOTT, RILEY SCHMIDT, JEREMY DAVIES, AMY GUMENICK, ANDREW DIVOFF, MITCH PILEGGI, ANNABETH GISH, and WILLIAM B. DAVIS from their appearance at Walker Stalker/Fan Fest this weekend in Atlanta. Our clients were excited to be there to meet their fans and were more than patient, but Walker Stalker never booked travel to the event and as of today (24 hours before travel date) are waiting on confirmation on other contractual obligations that have not been met by Fan Fest/Walker Stalker. We are very sorry for the fans who were coming to meet our clients and hope to see you at a non Fan Fest event. If you see any of the above talent still be advertised to appear in Atlanta this weekend, please be sure to understand that this is coming from their official management team and they will NOT be in Atlanta."
The Walker Stalker Facebook page does not appear to address the cancellations, but the convention is offering “50% Off General Admission & Silver VIPs”.
Walker Stalker has other conventions scheduled in London, Chicago, and New Jersey.
