Frances Forces Florida Ozzfest Cancellation

Ozzfest cancels last show in WEST PALM Florida; on Saturday September 4th due to category 5 Hurricane Frances predicted to hit the state of Florida on Friday Sept 3rd. About 2.5 million residents were told to clear out ahead of what could be the most powerful storm to hit Florida in a decade.

Andy Williams, guitarist of Every Time I Die is very disappointed. “I am bummed out, everyone is rushing out of Florida, and we are not able to say our goodbyes to the bands we shared the heaviest stage all summer long with. To the fans, I am sorry but, we will be back on the Dillinger Escape Plan tour and we will play an extra-long set for our fans in Florida.”

If there IS a Florida, that is.

Per the venue:

    This Saturday’s Ozzfest at Sound Advice Amphitheatre has been CANCELLED! Refunds will be available at your original place of purchase.

    Tickets purchased with a credit card online or by phone through Ticketmaster
    will be automatically refunded. (There is no need to call or do anything for
    a refund on credit card purchases.)

    The Sound Advice Amphitheatre ticket office will be closed until Tuesday.

No matter how technologically advanced we may be, there is no getting around the wrath of Mother Nature. Best of luck, Florida.
