SACRAMENTO, CA (CelebrityAccess) — The debut concert for The Crest Theatre's new operators turned out to be a wash after the show was canceled.
Grammy-winning R&B singer Chrisette Michele was set to play at the concert on November 7th, but organizers in late October announced that the date would be postponed and then, on Friday, Crest manager Yulya Borroum revealed that the concert had been canceled.
“It is disappointing,” Borroum told the Sacramento Bee. “But shows get canceled for a number of reasons. It is part of the business. …Unfortunately, until we start in-house promoting, we don’t have any control over the promoters.”
The show's promoter ReVamp said on their Facebook page that the concert was postponed due “due to scheduling conflicts and the contractual network agreement with TV One.” TV One is the cable network that carries the reality television show “R&B Divas: Los Angeles,” on which Michele appears.
The Crest transitioned to new operators on November 1st after taking over from longtime tenant CSLM when they failed to reach a new lease agreement with Robert Emerick, the building's owner. Emerick’s fiancée, Yulya Borroum now handles management at the venue.
“We are not going to change the Crest,” Emerick told The Bee. “The look and the feel will be much the same. We are just looking at a few enhancements that will recognize current trends.”
