Albany -- A concert hailed as an example of successful new marketing at the Albany Civic Center won't go on as planned tomorrow. But George Jones' fans should get to see him perform in a few days.

The country legend is suffering from flu-like symptoms and is under doctor's orders to take a few days off.

Thursday night's show is rescheduled for 7 p.m. Sunday. All tickets for Thursday's show will be honored Sunday.

Organizers say this won't stop the center from attracting good acts.

"Every once in a while you are going to have a interruption. This is a slight interruption. It's not a cancellation. It's just a postponement, and we can live with that because we're still going to have a quality show," said Albany Civic Center marketing and promotions manager Tony Ford.

Two south Georgia performers will open for George Jones. They won a local country star contest last week.
