Talent Night Out didn't fizzle out

September 29, 2006

Albany -- A highly publicized talent show switched venues at the last minute - leaving many wondering whether it was even taking place. 

Talent Night Out, organized by "MusicTech.Net" was supposed to take place last night at the Albany Civic Center, but Wednesday evening, the civic center decided to cancel the event.

Sponsors say the show's producer's didn't fulfill their obligation with ticket sales. "They were anticipating ticket sales to be more advance,' says Sponsor Gregory Kamishlian. "And the civic center has an agreement that says we need so much up front cash, or we need so much in ticket sales, that way we're guaranteed we'll get the number that's due to the city."  

The show did take place last night, but it was moved to the State Theatre. The Civic Center's director says people who purchased tickets through their box office or through ticketmaster can receive a refund.
