Via St. Louis Post-Dispatch pop music critic Kevin Johnson's blog The Blender, the news comes that the concert by trumpeter Chris Botti scheduled for Saturday, September 13 at the Fox Theatre has been postponed.
The announcement cites "scheduling complications" as the reason for the postponement. But whose schedule was complicated? As of this writing, the Fox Theatre show is still listed on Botti's Web site. The tour dates page there shows him in Leawood, Kansas the previous night, September 12, with St. Louis on the 13th and then open dates until the September 18, when he's set to do the first of two nights in Boston.
Meanwhile, the Fox's schedule of upcoming shows also still lists Botti's concert, and shows nothing else playing the theater until September 24, when the Robert Plant/Alison Krauss tour makes its St. Louis stop.
Given that there's no obvious conflict on either schedule, it does make one wonder why Botti's concert really was postponed. Regardless, Metrotix is refunding money to ticket buyers at the point of purchase, and the announcement says Botti will be rescheduled for 2009.
