How about some reporting, WaPo? Why was it canceled? "Scheduling conflicts" seems unlikely at best for a concert announced months ago.

My guess: Poor ticket sales. OR tea-partiers threatening to protest the Dixie Chicks. Don't you remember what they said about good ol' Gee-Dub?

There goes another Live Nation/Ticketmaster processing fee that won't get refunded. How many months will pass before Live Nation processes the refunds and credits our credit cards?

I did not buy tickets because of the Dixie Chicks. They are political jerks.

We saw the Eagles at the Verizon Center last year and they put on the best concert I have ever seen. I saw Keith Urban last night on the Academy of Country Music awards show and he put on a spectacular performance. Just drop the chicks and start over.

Nats Park is a toilet. The neighborhood it's in is a toilet, even the performers, for MONEY won't go there. Putting Nats Park where they did? Big mistake. I ain't going there. Nor is anyone else.
