As we said then – and reaffirm now – we're committed to building an incredible rock show for the Houston rock community. It's not our preference to stop a show, or inconvenience anyone by having them seek shelter or leave the facility, but we take dangerous weather conditions very seriously and will not compromise anyone's safety. Looking forward to bringing the rock back to Texas!"
