BUFFALO, N.Y. – Fans of the country music singer Eric Church smashed chairs and threw bottles and cans after his planned concert in Buffalo was canceled due to bad weather.

The Buffalo News reports organizers of the WYRK Taste of Country concert decided to halt the multi-act show at around 11 p.m. Friday after strong winds threatened the stage at Buffalo’s Coca Cola Field.

Church had originally been scheduled to go on at about 9:45 p.m.

Some fans, who had been waiting in heavy rain, responded by hurling chairs onto the stage, or dumping them into large piles. Some witnesses described the scene as frightening.

The singer issued a statement saying he was “bummed” about the cancellation, but planned to return to Buffalo at a later date.
