Deposit A No-Show?

George Jones canceled a Dec. 15 concert at Carl Perkins Civic Center in Jackson, Miss., reportedly because of breach of contract by the promoter.

Jones’ agent, Reggie Mac of Top Notch Talent, told Pollstar the country star didn’t want to cancel but promoter Ronald Johnson of R.J. Concerts failed to pay the deposit by Nov. 15 as agreed.

Mac said he tried to work out the financial arrangements with Johnson, to no avail, which led to the Dec. 6 decision to cancel.
