Local news: Second Maxwell show at Verizon "rescheduled"

Promoters at Live Nation announced this morning that Maxwell's Verizon Center concert on Thursday, June 17 has been "rescheduled" for Baltimore's 1st Mariner Arena on Thursday, July 15.

The announcement cited "scheduling conflicts," but after the Eagles/Dixie Chicks/Keith Urban mega-concert at Nationals Park was recently axed for that same exact reason, we have a sneaking (and, at present, unfounded) suspicion that "scheduling conflicts" might actually be code for "didn't sell enough tickets."

Meantime, Maxwell's June 18 performance at the Verizon Center with Jill Scott is still a go. And if you bought tickets for the June 17 show, refunds are available at point of purchase. Tickets purchased online and by phone will be automatically refunded.

Not surprised at all. Maxwell has a show with Jill Scott on the 18th. The rocket scientist promoters thought it would be wise to add a second show on the 17th WITHOUT Jill Scott and still charge the same amount. Can you say FAIL???

I think that's true. I'm a die-hard Eagles AND Dixie Chicks fan, and was approved for pre-public ticket purchase, and wanted to go but when I saw that for like $230 I was still off the field, and that the cheapest nosebleed seat ticket was $100, I chuckled and didn't take the bait. If it was canceled for failing to sell tickets, I would also postulate that they totally overestimated what people would pay. I'm not poor, but I don't want to be taken...

The Eagles? I thought they were done. Oh, right, they are done.
