Update (As of February 12) Both Justin Timberlake concerts, set to take place at the Tacoma Dome on February 10 and 11, have been cancelled due to Seattle’s severe weather conditions. Neither show will be rescheduled, and ticket holders can receive refunds through point of purchase.
As Seattle, Washington prepared for a snow storm this past weekend, a handful of events were cancelled, including Bob Seger and Justin Timberlake’s concerts.
Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band’s show on February 9 at the Tacoma Dome was postponed as the band cited “extreme weather and road conditions.”
“Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band loaded in this morning with the full intention to perform tonight’s scheduled concert at the Tacoma Dome,” the venue said in a statement. “Unfortunately, yesterday’s State of Emergency declared by Governor Inslee has not been lifted. Additionally, City of Tacoma officials have deemed that the show cannot go on as scheduled.”
The band said in a Facebook post that “Bob Seger is concerned about the safety and well-being of his fans that will be travelling for this show.” At this time, a postponed show date has not been announced, but and fans are encouraged to hold onto their tickets until a new date is confirmed.
Justin Timberlake, who was set to perform at the Tacoma Dome the following night on February 10, also postponed his gig.
“As a result of severe weather conditions in Washington state and further to Governor’s proclamation of a state of emergency relating to road closures and impacts to the transportation system resulting from the state wide storm, Live Nation has confirmed that the Justin Timberlake Man Of The Woods concert previously rescheduled for tomorrow – Sunday, February 10th is postponed,” Tacoma Dome said in a statement on Saturday night.
“Live Nation advises fans to hold onto their tickets for Sunday’s show as we hope to announce rescheduling information in the near future.”
Additionally, Michelle Obama’s Book Tour on February 8 at the Tacoma Dome was rescheduled to March 24, Katie Kuffel’s concert at the Ballard Homestead on February 8 was postponed to February 16, and Tony Furtado’s show on February 9 was moved to February 21. The University of Washington women’s basketball game on Saturday was cancelled, and Seattle’s WAC matchup against Utah Valley was rescheduled to February 26.
