DENVER (AP) - The Colorado Symphony says a series of marijuana-themed fundraising concerts will be invitation-only in an attempt to address concerns that audiences were going to break the law by smoking weed in public.

In a statement Tuesday, the symphony also said it was removing information about the three events scheduled to start later this month from its website and refunding tickets purchased already. The events at a Denver art gallery will now be open to a list of VIP guests by invitation.

After the symphony announced the concerts in April, the Denver city attorney warned they could violate laws against public marijuana consumption. The symphony says it worked out its new rules in consultation with the city attorney, who did not immediately return a call from The Associated Press on Tuesday.
