POWER OUTAGES AFFECTING PARTS OF TORONTO
LEADS TO POSTPONEMENT OF TONIGHT'S PHISH SHOW
It is quite clear that despite the flooding in Toronto, everything is being done to make
tonight's Phish show, the first
show on Canadian soil for the band since 2000, still happen. Live Nation Ontario has just
tweeted that, "A
outage is currently affecting a portion of TO. Plans are underway to use temp power to
keep the @Phish show
proceeding as scheduled."
The venue's twitter feed
has echoed the same
news, and has been active all day providing updates and replying directly to questions
We will keep you updated on the news as it happens.
UPDATE: Tonight's Phish show has been postponed until July 22. Here's the official
word from the band:
Due to insurmountable transportation and public safety issues resulting from the power
outage in Toronto after severe downpours in the city, Phish's performance tonight at
Molson Canadian Amphitheare has been postponed. The show has been moved to Monday, July
22. All tickets will be honored at the new date. Refunds are available at point of
purchase for fans who cannot attend. Phish has been greatly looking forward to their first
Toronto appearance in nearly 13 years. Everyone involved worked tirelessly throughout the
day and exhausted all options, but ultimately, public safety had to come first. We are
sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
