During Journey’s set last night in Albuquerque, New Mexico, high winds led the band to end the night early and postpone the show.
The concert, which took place at Isleta Amphitheater, was packed with fans. When strong winds started to hit the venue, officials called off the rest of the gig. Stage crews began to break down the monitors, lights, and speakers, which were banging into each other from the wind, Albuquerque Journal reports. Concertgoers in the front rows were asked to relocate.
“Unfortunately the weather has prevented us from continuing tonight show for safety reasons,” the venue said in a Facebook post. “Stay tuned for updates tomorrow regarding the show.”
While some fans are upset about the outcome, claiming that the performers don’t have time in their tour schedule to come back, the amphitheater encourages fans to hold onto tickets for the time being until they have more information. The theatre told concertgoers to keep checking back to their Facebook page for updates about refunds and the postponed show.
Journey and Def Leppard are currently on their co-headlining tour. The next stop is tomorrow in Phoenix, Arizona, followed by shows in Canada and on the West Coast. After a show in Honolulu, Hawaii on October 20, Def Leppard will head to Japan, Australia, and several countries across Europe, hitting dates with opening acts Scorpions or Cheap Trick, varying per date.
