June 3 concert canceled

The Concert Under the Stars to benefit the Puppy Coalition Foun­dation, which had been scheduled for June 3, has been canceled.

Lyle Davis, who organized the event to happen at Melrose Ranch, announced the cancella­tion over the weekend. “It’s with a very heavy heart that I reluctantly have to cancel the concert for Fri­day, June 3rd,” he wrote. “Tickets sales are simply anemic. Less than 100 general admission sales, only seven VIP tables sold . . . the com­bined revenue of which don’t even come close to matching up with scheduled expenses.”

He added, “I’m open to resched­uling to a later date as I think we had an attractive package put to­gether. As in so many things in life, timing may well have been the is­sue. The venue was superb, the art­ists are fantastic, the sound/lighting crew are extraordinary, Julie Stroh [of Melrose Ranch] worked her heart out, and all appeared in place to produce an outstanding concert. But the ticket sales simply aren’t there. So sorry. Hope we can work together again.”
