Fans toss chairs after Eric Church cancels show

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — 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.

If a tornado came through and leveled the place, these same folks would've been suing on behalf of the ones that didn't make it...

 The  performer  can   decide  if  they  feel  safe  or  not.  If  I  did  not  feel  safe  in my  job,  I'M  out  of  there.

LOL I thought it was about a church as well.  I don't even know who this guy is but he obviously has some very self-centered selfish fans.  Would the right thing be to have him perform and endanger his life and the others who work with him as well as the fans?  No it's always better to be safe than sorry.  You know what they say with fans like that you don't need enemies - oh wait that's friends lol.
