The concert at first was rescheduled to 8:30 pm after the other performers which included Natasha, Bedingfield, Tony Benett, Carole King and LL Cool J were unable to make it to the venue due to bad weather. The fans were allowed to enter at around 8 pm, but after 15 minutes the concert got cancelled because of worsening weather conditions.
