The Backstreet Boys had to postpone their concert at Oklahoma’s WinStar World Casino and Resort after 14 fans were injured in August, but the band announced that rescheduling isn’t an option at this time.

Just before the sold-out show in Thackerville, a storm swept through the venue, and 80 mph winds pushed over a metal structure that fell onto waiting fans. Following the incident, Backstreet Boys released the following statement:

“We never want to put our fans in harm’s way and with tonight’s weather and the injuries from earlier, we have decided to cancel the show and will attempt to reschedule. The most important thing is for everyone to get home safely and we will see you all very soon!”

However, the concert with 98 Degrees can not be rescheduled, the group said.

“Regrettably, we won’t be able to reschedule our show in Thackerville at WinStar World Casino and resort,” the band said in a Twitter post. “We do plan to be back in the Dallas and Tulsa area in 2019! Stay tuned for additional information as we want to make this up to all our fans in the area.”

The group did not give a reason for the inability to reschedule. Following the message, the casino sent out an email to ticket holders noting that refunds will be available at point of purchase.

Currently, BSB is performing a residency in Las Vegas titled “Larger Than Life” after their 1999 hit track. Their last run of dates at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino’s Zappos Theatre kicks-off on October 24 and runs through next April. While a cross-country tour hasn’t been announced yet, the band definitely has something in the works and fans expect an announcement soon.

BSB hasn’t released an album since 2013’s A World Like This, but earlier this year, they dropped the single “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart.” The track is expected to be on an upcoming album, due sometime this year.

“I want to create new memories,” member Brian Littrell said of the new single and the future of BSB. “We’ve been singing the same songs for almost 25 years. It’s not that we’re not excited to sing our old hits, but we want to grow, too. We don’t want to be stuck in what was. We want to continue to grow with our fans.”
