Last night's scheduled concert with Maroon 5 and Kelly Clarkson at The Gorge Amphitheatre was cancelled due to severe, unseasonable weather at the Quincy, Washington outdoor concert venue. The decision to cancel was made unanimously by representatives of the artists and promoter Live Nation, solely in the interest of audience, artist and crew safety.
"In 27 years of producing shows at The Gorge we had previously never cancelled a show due to weather. The decision to do so was not made lightly. It was only after careful deliberation with show production, artist management and venue management that this difficult decision was reached.
The show was loaded in and the artists were on-site ready to perform. We all felt given the severe circumstance with the weather, cancellation was the lesser evil, rather than risking a serious injury to anybody at the venue," said Jeff Trisler, President of Live Nation Northwest and long-time promoter of The Gorge concert series.
