Flooding at Fox Theater cancels Art Garfunkel concert

The flooding affected the stage and front door of the venue. Garfunkel was unable to rehearse or do a soundcheck.

SPOKANE, Wash. — The Fox Theater in Spokane experienced flooding that has caused an Art Garfunkel concert scheduled for Thursday night to be canceled.

Fox Theater Public Relations Manager Alison Highberger said the flooding affected the front door and stage of the venue. 

Highberger said at about 4:30 p.m. flood waters from the street crept down the back stairs of the theater and on to the stage.

She said this flooding prevented Garfunkel from doing a rehearsal or soundcheck, and they will be rescheduling the concert for a later date.

No damage was done to the stage. They have a specialist coming out to look it.

Highberger said the flooding shouldn't impact the Neil Young show on Saturday. If it does, there will be a decision made by 4 p.m. Saturday.

Anyone with tickets to the concert can call the Fox Theater Box Office at 509-624-1200 for more information.
