Augusta Entertainment Complex General Manager Monty Jones said Carrington had canceled some January shows and his entire weekend of performances for the same reason.

“Ticket sales were actually pretty good,” Jones said.

All tickets purchased for the Friday show will be honored at a rescheduled Carrington performance at the Bell at 8 p.m. Sept. 26, according to a release from Outback Concerts.

I would love to go see him in

I would love to go see him in person, but I just can't justify the ticket prices to myself.

the semi-big names and such

the semi-big names and such try to pack something as big as the Bell and have to set the ticket price so high to hedge their bet so to speak. If Augusta was anything more than a bermuda triangle for entertainment culture, we'd have all the littler downtown venues popping at the seams with these acts, including Mister Carrington.

The issue is that it's anemic from the perspective of the business owners and from the patrons looking at the empty buildings. Bad combination, the worst. It's not a very difficult equation, if the smaller venues succeed, then the bigger ones follow, not the reverse. Maybe there is another formula that someone is following that will make it all work out eventually dunno.
