PNC Bank Arts Center will ‘make it up’ to fans who left delayed show
HOLMDEL — The PNC Bank Arts Center said it is aware of the "miscommunication" following a rain delay at Thursday night's Florida Georgia Line concert.
The concert was stopped about 8 p.m. because of heavy rain from a thunderstorm. Fans with lawn seats were sent to their cars to wait it out.
“If you are under the roof, stay in place," an announcer said. "If you are on the lawn, please return to your cars. Stay tuned to your social media. We will alert you when and if the show will start again.”
But some fans said that security guards told them to leave because the concert had been postponed. Electronic signs around the venue also had the same message.
The Center sent out a message on its social media sometime between 9:30 and 10 p.m. that the concert would continue that night, which angered the fans who left.
A a spokesman for Live Nation said Saturday that "while the vast majority of fans enjoyed a great performance, we apologize for the inconvenience and frustration this may have caused for some."
The company said it would contact ticket holders to let them know "how we plan to make it up to them."
The venue's website states that "cancelations will only occur in the event of severe weather, artist cancelation, or an act of God. In the event of a cancelation, local media will be notified and any information about a potential reschedule will be made available. Refunds will be available at the point of purchase."
