The parks department had a combined contract including both bands, so the show had to be canceled, Eggeman said.
The concert series begins May 18 with a free performance by the Fort Wayne Philharmonic Youth Symphony and Concert Orchestra. It ends with Los Lobos on Sept. 27.
Highlights include the Guess Who on June 6, REO Speedwagon on June 24, Foreigner on July 12 and Styx on Aug. 16.
