This really makes me sad. Not that Eric Church had to cancel his concert, due to bad weather. I’m sad that there are country music fans who let something like a canceled concert turn them into vandals. Below is the press release that came with the picture (also below). When you read it, you’ll understand that the show had to be canceled because ‘strong winds threatened the stage.’ It seems to me that anyone who remembers what Sugarland went through last year in Indiana would have been more than happy about the cancelation. Here’s the photo and release.
Fans of the country music singer Eric Church smashed chairs and threw bottles and cans after his planned concert in Buffalo was canceled due to bad weather.
The Buffalo News reports organizers of the WYRK Taste of Country concert decided to halt the multi-act show at around 11 p.m. Friday after strong winds threatened the stage at Buffalo’s Coca Cola Field.
Church had originally been scheduled to go on at about 9:45 p.m. Some fans, who had been waiting in heavy rain, responded by hurling chairs onto the stage, or dumping them into large piles. Some witnesses described the scene as frightening.
I was glad to hear that Eric is planning to reschedule the Buffalo show at a later date, but I’m still very disappointed to hear how the fans reacted to word that the show was being canceled. Let’s try to do better than that in the future, country fans. Sometimes things happen, and we really need to learn to accept that.
I’ll be back with more soon!
