Homecoming concert to play smaller venue

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany State University's Homecoming Concert is changing locations this weekend.

The Manhattans and comedian Lightfoot were originally scheduled to perform Saturday night at the Albany Civic Center, but the concert has been moved to the Municipal Auditorium.

When we questioned the University about the promotion of the concert and whether it was moved over poor ticket sales, they said the concert has been promoted early on and people just aren't spending. 

"I think people are just selective in terms of how they may spend money and so last minute decisions are being made in terms of that, but we expect it to be a sold out event," said Wendy Wilson, the Interim Director of ASU Communications.

The University says there are still plenty of tickets available. The concert begins at 9:00 Saturday night with proceeds benefiting the Presidential Scholarship Fund.
