And he refused to start his program last Saturday in front of 800 people until the beer was available to his fans.
The municipality is responsible for the bar service permit in the square. But nothing was planned.
The show finally started after 45 minutes, according to the head of the House of Culture, Diane Dechen.

A truck enters the arena full of beer cratesDiane Dechen is still surprised.
Yes, yes, directly in the arena. After that, Mike gave Ward cans of beer enwille strong.
The city of Shebjan and the cultural community did not find the situation very funny. Mayor Kassem Doumbia talks about a missed opportunity.
I don’t want to blame anyoneMayor Kassem Doumbia insists.
There may have been a lack of communication on both sides. In the municipality we did not take the opportunity to provide the service.
When I learned that there was no service, and that Mr. Ward had taken the initiative to serve alcohol, I immediately asked the city to reimburse him for the beer he had bought, which he refused.Mayor says.
On site, the city general manager took care of distributing free bottles of water, which is somewhat of a disaster.
Diane DesChênes explains that the task of the cultural community is not to sell alcohol, but to make performances. She admits she was surprised.
Are you going to ask Mike Ward to do a show in Shepgan?
yes. But I will specify in the contract that he is not entitled to bring or serve drink.
Mike Ward’s agent, Michael Grenier, said the comedian really enjoyed his six-show tour in New Brunswick.
