Bad news for those expecting to see Maceo Parker at the Fox Theatre tonight: The saxophone great will not be performing in Boulder this evening. No word on the reason for the cancellation or when the date will be rescheduled, but Parker offered an apology via Facebook:
"Dear Friends in Colorado and Phoenix," he writes. "I am so sorry I have had to cancel my shows this week, we are trying to re-schedule these dates further down the line, ... if you had bought tickets and can make a copy we will try to do something special for you."
According to folks at the Fox, refunds are available at the point of purchase. Those who purchased their tickets on the Fox website with a credit card will be issued an automatic refund, which should appear within the next a week or so.
