However, Meesters said their contract “does not call for us to manage the marketing of the event.”

The Rock the Red committee then attacked Charlotte on their web site: "Rock the Red wishes to honor our donors supporters by hosting an event at a different venue. We pray that with such little time and notice we will be able to accomplish this. We REFUSE to be bullied by the liberal city of Charlotte and their counterparts. We ask for your support, and help. Please join us, and we will keep you informed."
