Randy Newman Cancelled

Posted By on Fri, Feb 16, 2007 at 2:01 PM

Randy Newman has postponed his Silver Screen concert in Akron Sunday. The singer — who wrote "Rednecks," "Short People," and more sad songs for CGI movies than we care to count -- is apparently sick. But we wouldn't be surprised if he's just laboring away on his acceptance speech for next week's Oscar ceremonies (Newman's up for his 17th Academy Award). A new date hasn't been announced yet. Hold on to your tickets for the rescheduled show. Or turn 'em in for a refund. --Michael Gallucci
