SYRACUSE — There are supposed to be three more “Wednesdays on the Water” concerts at the Inner Harbor, but media sponsor 95X (WAQX) says the concert series promoter, NCS Events, has decided to pull the plug on the series.
Tom Mitchell, operations manager at 95X owner Citadel Broadcasting, immediately handled damage control, making it clear Citadel was not behind the decision.
In a written statemement to CNYRadio.com and other local media, Mitchell said, “while we are disappointed with the NCS decision, we appreciate the support of our sponsorship partners, and the attendance by the many thousands of Central New Yorkers who enjoyed the free concerts on the past five Wednesdays at Syracuse’s Inner Harbor.”
Mitchell says Lou Gramm, who enjoyed success with the band Foreigner, as well as a solo artist, was scheduled to appear this Wednesday. Dokken was due to appear August 4 and The Outlaws were expected to perform on August 11.
Every week, personalities from 95X were on hand to introduce the acts, as seen in a recent CNYRadio.com Picture of the Week.
