Saturday night's Maroon 5 and Kelly Clarkson concert at The Gorge Amphitheatre was cancelled due to severe weather.
Representatives of the artists and promoter Live Nation made the decision 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,” said Jeff Trisler, President of Live Nation Northwest and long-time promoter of The Gorge concert series.
“The show was loaded in and the artists were on-site ready to perform,” said Trisler. “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.
Patrons who purchased tickets to the show can receive a full refund by returning their tickets to place of purchase. Complete instructions will be available on Monday for those who bought their tickets at the Gorge Amphitheatre box office. For more information, call Ticketmaster at 1-800-745-3000.
