Violent Weather Halts Jay-Z/Ciara Concert
The latest date on Jay-Z and Ciaras current summer has been cancelled by inclement weather in Atlanta Sunday night (July 12).
Fans attending the show, which was scheduled to begin at 7:30 pm, were alarmed when a rash of thunderstorms swept through the city during the early evening hours.
In addition to causing traffic concerns, the weather was a major issue for the concert itself, which was to be held at the Chastain Park Amphitheater, an outdoor venue on the Northeast side of town.
The shows opening act, rapper Fabolous, was unable to perform, pushing Jay-Zs start time to 8pm.
However, as of 8:30pm, an hour after the concerts scheduled start, V-103 on-air personality Ryan Cameron reported that Jay-Z had yet to land in Atlanta, as his private plane had been grounded, unable to maneuver through the lightning.
Jay-Z has yet to reach the venue, which traditionally ends all events at 11pm and is located in the affluent residential neighborhood of Buckhead.
According to reports, the show has been rescheduled for August 13th.
