The promoter told Channel 2's Tom Jones that he is considering offering partial refunds.

He also stopped answering the phone calls and texts from Jones.

"This was one of the biggest rip-offs I've ever seen," concertgoer Reggie Nelson told Jones.

Other concertgoers include the wife of Shelley Wynter, co-host of WSB Radio's "Word On the Street," who received her ticket as a gift from her husband.
