The newly renovated Mountain Winery Amphitheater in Saratoga, CA was forced to remain dark for the first couple of shows of its 2008 season; Styx (July 2), Wynton Marsalis (July 6), Boston (July 7-8) and Bob Weir & Ratdog / Gov’t Mule (July 9-10) were either relocated or rescheduled.

For the first two shows, work on the venue had not yet been completed, promoter Live Nation’s Lee Smith told the Mercury News. Truss installation issues raised by Boston’s production crew forced Live Nation to move several shows to alternate venues and postpone other shows to later dates.

Boston was moved to the Flint Center in Cupertino about 6 miles from the Winery, and the Bob Weir & Ratdog / Gov’t Mule concerts were held at the San Jose Center for Performing Arts. Styx performance was moved to September 17, while Kathy Griffin’s July 11 show was re-scheduled to August 25, both remaining at the Mountain Winery Amphitheater.
