Eric Church Fans Upset That Weather Stops Show—Again

Concertgoers take to Eric’s website to complain about cancellation in Bluefield, W.Va.

Wow, looks like Eric Church can't catch a break with Mother Nature this summer.

Officials canceled a show Friday night (June 29) at a small college football stadium in Bluefield, W.Va., after seeing that a storm would be blowing through the area.

Many fans took to Eric's website to complain that the rain wasn't very intense and didn't last very long.

"No safety issues [and] the rain only lasted MAYBE 10 minutes," fan Bigj1100 posted. "Something needs to be done to make it right, a lot of upset fans right now!"

Several fans posted that local radio personalities—after opener Lee Brice played—told the fans they would be allowed to come back into the 10,000-seat stadium after an evacuation for the weather. But the show did not go back on.

Opening act Jake Owen also was disappointed.

"One of the very few nights in my career where we had to cancel due to weather. Sorry y'all. WV, we'll make it up to ya," he tweeted.

The cancellation came almost exactly a month after Eric's June 1 show in Buffalo, N.Y., was canceled because of bad weather. That time, fans did more than post online—dozens threw garbage, chairs and bottles onto the stage.

Country Weekly asked for reaction to Friday night's cancellation. No immediate reaction so far.
