Some DC9 readers poked fun at me for listing Kenny Chesney show at Frisco's Pizza Hut Park in last week's Good Friday blog post.
Well, love him or hate him, at least Chesney has some principals: Even though he only made it through a few songs before torrential rain shut down the show (see above), there was never any mention by the venue or the promoter whether or not tickets would be refunded.
Word out today is that the show has been rescheduled for May 17 and that all tickets for the original date will be honored (although now the show will feature general admission seating).
One question remains, though: If you purchased a ticket and put that ticket in your pocket, was it salvageable after such a downpour?
In other news, the Jennifer Hudson and Robin Thicke show that was canceled last Thursday because Hudson's doctor recommended she rest her voice, has been pushed back to May 21.
