Mahaffey Theater cancels Friday's Allen Stone concert, adds free Vintage Trouble show on Sunday
Allen Stone is an unlikely soul hero, and the 2,000-seat Mahaffey Theatre is an unlikely venue for him. So maybe his show there on Friday simply was never meant to be.
According to the Mahaffey's website, Stone's show at the Mahaffey has been canceled. No single reason was immediately offered from the venue or the performer. Refunds are available at point of purchase.
The good news is the Mahaffey has just added a new, free show this weekend. Rock 'n' soul outfit Vintage Trouble, who have blown up in Europe and toured with the likes of Bon Jovi and The Who, will headline a free Bud Light Kick-Off to Super Bowl Week. The event will take place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday outside the Mahaffey. The Black Honkeys and Malaya will also perform, and there will be food and drink vendors. It's free and open to all ages.
