Lyle Lovett concertgoers sit under umbrellas as the crew begins to tear down the stage Monday night at Heritage Crossing on Dixon's riverfront. The show was canceled because of a thunderstorm. Organizers are working to reschedule the performance.

DIXON – Discussions about rescheduling the Lyle Lovett concert started Monday night, shortly after the decision was made to call off the outdoor show because of a thunderstorm.

Dixon Main Street is working with Lovett's agency and camp to "nail down a rescheduled date," said Josh Albrecht, Main Street's executive director.

Ticketing was handled by The Crystal Cork, 219 W. First St. Owner Eric Brantley said tickets bought for Monday night's show would be honored at the rescheduled concert.

Brantley would not discuss whether refunds would be offered.

In May, Main Street announced that Lovett would play a concert at Heritage Crossing as part of a 2-day festival celebrating the 5-year anniversary of the downtown riverfront development.

The concert also marked the start of a new initiative by Main Street to bring three big events, including the Petunia Festival, to the riverfront each year.

Yes. Sterling and Dixon have had bans for years. It’s time for Rock Falls to impose a ban.
No. It would be too great a burden for homeowners to dispose of fallen leaves in other ways.
