Fulton County's Wolf Creek Amphitheater, which has cost taxpayers nearly $7 million to build, equip and operate, has nothing scheduled for the remainder of 2012. The county canceled Saturday's soul and jazz concert headlined by Angie Stone, saying in a news release that it will be rescheduled.
A reason wasn't given, but several officials said it was because of poor ticket sales. The only event held at the south Fulton venue so far this year was the two-day Funk Fest last month, which included a nearly sold-out show headlined by New Edition and -- according to Commissioner Bill Edwards -- earned $68,000 for the county. Edwards says other bookings are in the works. Info on Ticketmaster refunds: 1-800-653-8000.
