The “Duck Dynasty” clan isn’t the draw it used to be. Not even in the Bible Belt.
Promoters announced last month that members of the Robertson family would appear at a show titled “Faith, Family & Ducks” at an 11,000-seat arena in Springfield, Mo.
For $37, $50 or $58, fans could enjoy live music and hear the bayou millionaires talk about “living the American dream” while staying true to their “family values and modest lifestyle.”
But according to local media reports, the April 27 event has been canceled due to low ticket sales.
The golden era for the A&E reality series appears to be over. Ratings for last month’s season five finale were down almost 30 percent from the previous year.
A&E briefly suspended Robertson before capitulating to conservatives like Sarah Palin and Bobby Jindal.
