Sour note

Blake Gibb June 19th, 2013

As feared, the Zoo Amphitheatre does not have a Summer/Fall lineup as of June 12. In past years, under the Zoo Amp’s previous management, I already could have planned what concerts I would attend over the next four to five months at the Zoo. Now the people of OKC have nothing?

So, now, instead of our beloved Zoo, we are being offered the Downtown Airpark; what the heck is that? Maybe they will drag out their rickety, worn-out Ferris wheel to attract attendees.

Shame on the zoo trustees for turning this over to casino promoters, who could not compete with the Zoo Amp, so they bought it — a classic business strategy.

OKC has never been a concert mecca, and losing the Zoo lineup brings us closer to being a musical wasteland. With all of the positive things happening in OKC, this loss is a real step backward.

Will the last person to leave the Zoo please turn out the lights?
