Cooper is traveling on assignment to cover the massive destruction in the Philippines caused by Typhoon Haiyan. The appearance will be rescheduled and announced at a later date.
All ticket holders will be contacted by email. Preferred ticket holders will be given a full, automated refund.

Described by the New York Times as "one of the strongest storms ever to make landfall," the unconfirmed death toll of the typhoon is estimated to be as high as 10,000.
