NEW YORK (AP) -- Two concert series in a year on Broadway is apparently too much for The Rascals: The '60s-era blue-eyed soul quartet has abandoned plans to play the Marquis Theatre this month.
In a statement released Monday, the band said a scheduling conflict with producer Stevie Van Zandt prompted the cancellation of a series of shows set to run from Dec. 16 to Jan. 5.
Full refunds are available.
Van Zandt is filming of the third season of his Netflix show "Lilyhammer" and touring with Bruce Springsteen.
"The Rascals: Once Upon a Dream" -- featuring the songs "Good Lovin,'" "People Got to Be Free" and "I've Been Lonely Too Long" performed by the original members -- played at the Richard Rodgers Theatre earlier this year.
