Hurricane Irene Blows Out Concert Calender On East Coast [VIDEO]
A little rain…no problem….a little wind…no problem…A hurricane? Uhhhhh reschedule that event.
The threat of Hurricane Irene was enough to leave several artists with no choice but to postpone a number of concerts scheduled in and around the New York area. BB King’s Rib Rock Festival featuring Buddy Guy and the J. Geils Band, was scheduled for Saturday on Long Island, but was cancelled. Saturday night’s planned Crosby, Stills & Nash show in Wainscott, NY was also postponed, as were three Frankie Valli performances in Atlantic City. A Donny Osmond’s Saturday gig got pushed back to October 9 and a Lynyrd Skynyrd concert slated for Sunday will now take place on October 1. With the way things have been going with summer concerts and outdoor stages this year…can’ say that I blame them. Well for those that missed the Lynyrd Skynyrd show here’s a little treat for you.
