The Bruce Hornsby concert originally announced for the EKU Center for the Arts June 16 has been moved to the Kentucky Theatre. It will be a rare, almost-unheard-of Saturday night concert for the Kentucky, which usually has to keep Saturdays open for movies.
Troubadour Concert Series promoter Michael Johnathon said the Kentucky management, "bent way over backwards to help us" once it was discovered the EKU Center had double booked its concert hall for the night of the Hornsby concert, June 16. EKU Center director Deb Hoskins said the venue had already booked the room for a private event, and she said she deeply regretted the scheduling error.
Howard Stovall, one of the partners in the Kentucky Theatre Group, said, "Troubadour has been a longtime tenant in the theater, and they were really in a bind, so we wanted to work to help them out." The consequence might be that the theater has to book a second run or more niche market film for one of its offerings that week, because most first-run film distributors will not allow a film to play a theater that won't screen it Saturday night.
The concert will be held at 7:30 p.m. June 16. Johnathon said tickets will go on sale at 1 p.m. April 21. Ticket prices have not been set.
