Pat Benatar

Here is the latest from the Arkansas Music Pavilion on Pat Benatar, whose July 12 concert at the venue was postponed due to an electrical storm.

It appears she won’t be coming back until 2009, AMP officials report.

“2009 is looking good, but because of routing complications, we are no longer confident we can reschedule this show for 2008,” the AMP said in a statement released this morning.

As a recourse, officials are offering Benatar ticket holders the chance to exchange their pass for one of the other remaining shows on the AMP’s calendar: The Black Crowes on Aug. 14; G Love and Special Sauce with the John Butler Trio on Aug. 26; Eddie Money on Sept. 5 (which is a free show sponsored by Cox Communications); Ani DiFranco on Sept. 16; and Bruce Hornsby and Ricky Skaggs on Oct. 3.

Orchestra ticket holders also get a beverage coupon and VIP upgrade with their exchange; other ticket holders get a beverage coupon.

To exchange tickets, e-mail TicketSage or call them at 587-8336.

A further announcement on Benatar is expected next week, the press release says.
