The REO Speedwagon / Styx show was over before it began at Konocti Harbor Resort & Spa in Kelseyville, Calif., May 23 when a lighting unit dropped, but did not hit the ground, a few seconds into the show.
Opening act 38 Special was only moments into its performance when the lighting unit dropped from the amphitheatre trussing, according to the Press-Democrat.
The show, the first of the season, was canceled and is being rescheduled. In other words, the cancellation came during the first song of the first show of the season.
Konocti GM Greg Bennett, who could not be reached at press time, told the paper the show was canceled because of a roofing issue.
