MINERAL, Va. (AP) - Capitol Records Nashville is increasing the number of free tickets for an Alan Jackson fundraising concert in a Virginia town hit hard by last year's earthquake.
Capitol says in a news release that 3,000 free tickets will be available on April 18 on a first-come, first served basis. The concert will be held May 20 in Mineral, the epicenter of the 5.8-magnitude earthquake.
Initially, Capitol planned to provide free tickets only to Mineral's roughly 490 residents. That prompted complaints from Louisa County residents that the concert had been promoted as free.
Tickets are still being sold for the concert. Proceeds will help the county rebuild schools damaged by the earthquake.
But Capitol says anyone who has bought tickets can get a refund through April 13 at www.ticketfly.com .
