May 14, 2013



Immediate resumption of the production schedule on the hit FX Network series ‘Sons of Anarchy’ has forced Charlie Hunnam to cancel all appearances by the series star at the Iowa Grand Motorcycle Rally on Friday, May 31 and Saturday, June 1.


Affected will be the announced two-hour public ‘meet & greet’ session on Saturday, and the three 90-minute private ‘meet & greets’ – one on Friday evening and two on Saturday afternoon – at Iowa Speedway in Newton.


“Needless to say, we are very disappointed that Charlie won’t be able to attend this year’s Iowa Grand Rally,” said Iowa Speedway CEO, Doug Fritz.  “He had such a great time meeting all the Rally fans last year, and he was really looking forward to coming back again this year.  Unfortunately Hollywood got in the way, and he had to cancel.”
