Promoter Frank Salazar received more money to refund people from the canceled "Hollywood Teen Stars" show.
He announced on Facebook on Wednesday how he would plan to distribute the refunds.
In a phone interview on Thursday, he said he was hoping to get the money back he paid to the agencies.
It has taken longer than Salazar anticipated.
He said he hand-delivered some refunds Thursday and already has given the money back for close to 1,200 tickets.
"It's not a fast process," he said. "But I'm going to keep going until everyone gets their money back."
The Victoria-based promoter said he would try to reimburse at least 100 tickets or $10,000 by the end of the day Thursday.
Salazar said to be fair, he's going to give refunds to individuals who paid for the 5 p.m. show first, starting at Row A and working his way to the back rows. Then he will take care of the noon time slot.
He's asking for people to text him their seat numbers and show time information so he can make arrangements accordingly.
