Brad Paisley Postpones Kentucky Tour Date
In light of the East Coast’s impending winter storm, Brad Paisley has postponed an upcoming concert.
Paisley’s 2016 Crushin’ It World Tour was scheduled to play the Corbin Arena in Corbin, Ky. on Saturday (Jan. 23); however, due to the winter weather coming to the area, the country star has postponed the show “for the safety of all fans and all personnel involved,” according to an announcement on Paisley’s official website.
A rescheduled date for the show has not yet been announced. According the the postponement announcement, refunds are available at the original point of purchase.
According to CNN meteorologist Taylor Ward, states “from eastern Kentucky across West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland and into southern Pennsylvania and New Jersey” could see 1-2 feet of snow in the coming days. Numerous activities in those areas have been canceled, and authorities are advising residents to stay safe as they mobilize crews to deal with the storm.
Paisley is not the only country artist whose touring schedule has been disrupted by this storm: Garth Brooks has also postponed two of his Baltimore, Md., World Tour dates. The country superstar was originally scheduled to perform on Friday and Saturday (Jan. 22 and 23, respectively) at the city’s Royal Farms Arena. Now, the Jan. 22 show has been rescheduled for Jan. 31 at 3PM, while the Jan. 23 show will take place on Jan. 31 at 7PM.
The 2016 Crushin’ It World Tour, which also features Eric Paslay and Cam as Paisley’s special guests, kicked off on Thursday night (Jan. 21) in Arkansas. A show scheduled for Friday night (Jan. 22) in Missouri will go on as planned.
