In the Black Eyed Peas song I Gotta Feeling, they sing they "party every day, p-p-p-party every day." Looks like those words DON'T apply to days with precipitation. Ha!
Last night, BEP cancelled on a crowd of THOUSANDS of fans who were waiting in Central Park for EIGHT HOURS in extreme heat, and then rain, to see the group perform!
The police department claimed that everything was being shut down due to lightning, to which the crowd of 20,000+ fans chanted "WE WON'T GO!"
The concert was set up to benefit the Robin Hood foundation, and here's what the organization had to say about it the situation in a statement:
"The heat wasn't going to stop them, the rain wasn't going to stop them, but the lightning-it stopped them. It came down to safety for everyone."
According to the foundation's website, they hope to reschedule the concert and they'll have more info "in the next week or so."
Certainly seems like this was out of the Black Eyed Peas' control, but we can def see why fans would be PO'd.
What do U think about this? Do fans have the right to be pissed, even though the show was cancelled due to weather?
