Some of Kid Rock’s fans were beyond furious when he had to stop performing “All Summer Long.” According to TMZ, when the artist had to postpone a performance at The North Dakota State Fair, the waiting fans rioted.
A storm that was brewing outside of town prohibited the “Bawitdaba” warbler from performing at the fair on Friday night. Around 9:30 p.m., Kid Rock was scheduled to perform, with Night Ranger serving as his opening act.
But at 11 o’clock, a Ward County Sheriff’s Department deputy approached the microphone and said that the event had been postponed. Unsurprisingly, the 18,000-person crowd was not happy and started trashing the venue.
Kid Rock Cancels Show, The Waiting Fans Riot:
Beer cans were thrown, one man attempted to get onto the stage before security tackled him, and cops handcuffed and escorted away another rowdy supporter.
The North Dakota State Fair announced the cancellation of the concert on its Facebook page, offering concertgoers refunds and citing that the show was canceled as a combined result of high winds, severe weather, and lighting issues that we’re raising the safety concerns of the public and the star.
The Michigan-born rockstar later took Twitter to voice his displeasure. However, he said that we could not control the moods of mother nature and thus wished his fans a safe journey back home.
The singer of “Redneck Paradise” has garnered media attention recently for his support of Donald Trump, his use of LGBT slurs, and a drunken tirade against Oprah Winfrey.
Rock is such a fan of Trump that he had a video from the current President to introduce him at the start of his most recent national tour.
The concert stayed postponed at the time of writing, and the star or his managerial team has confirmed no alternate date.
