Singers Cancel Indianola Concert

This appeared in the Des Moines Register - July 18, 2003

The Electric Barnyard Tour, scheduled to stop Saturday at the Balloon Field in Indianola, has been canceled.

Tour promoters and publicists said extreme heat encountered on the West Coast led to problems with the moving amphitheater being used. The temperature reportedly reached 106 degrees during the tour's July 11 stop in Dixon, California.

Iowa promoters also cited sluggish ticket sales.

The Electric Barnyard Tour, starring country singers Merle Haggard and Marty Stuart, last played Wednesday in Pueblo, Colorado. Dates in Kansas and Illinois were canceled in addition to the Iowa stop.

Ticketholders seeking refunds should return to their point of purchase.
