(TV) Keep on Rollin'......

QUEEN CREEK, Ariz. (AP) -- A 3-day rock concert with
REO Speedwagon, Kansas, Steppenwolf and others was
canceled when fewer than 400 tickets were sold.

``Nobody was calling. We couldn't believe it,'' said
Sheila Barr, whose husband Larry was the promoter for
the KSLX Rock Fest scheduled for next weekend in this
Phoenix suburb.

The festival was to have been held at Schnepf Farms,
the site of the recent Country Thunder festival for
which the Barrs' company also is the sponsor.

Country Thunder spokeswoman Melanie Gentz blamed the
failure on a slump in the concert industry and
inadequate promotion.
