Incase ya haven’t heard, Kid Rock’s headliner at the North Dakota State Fair in Minot, North Dakota went south real quick on Friday night, after it was cancelled due to inclement weather.
SO PISSED OFF we could not play for a sold out crowd tonight in Minot, ND (because of high winds) – I know it sucks but none of us can control mother nature. Please be safe leaving and take care of each other. -Kid Rock
Needless to say, a number of fans went absolutely batsh*t crazy over the cancellation, as the show was delayed nearly two hours before being officially called off.
And when I say batsh*t crazy, that may be an understatement.
We’re talking about a ton of trash being thrown on stage and at crew members as they were trying to load out gear, a dude actually charging the stage and getting absolutely obliterated by a security guy, and apparently cops were even having to mace some people in the crowd.
These are MAGA Kid Rock fans losing their shit & trashing the stage in North Dakota because the concert had to be cancelled due to high winds.
Nevertheless, fans still weren’t too happy after Mr. Rock’s tweet.
There are plenty of non-refundable costs associated with going to a big show like that… especially for those who traveled. And let’s be honest, anywhere in North Dakota require at least a little bit of travel.
$265 for tickets, $120 round trip for gas, $36 fair admission, $100 merchandise purchase, $200 food and beverages, 2 hours in line to get through security, 3 and a half hours waiting to hear show is canceled. This is why people are pissed off. Easy to say chill when not there.
The fuck it was. Yes for a bit it was windy, but storm went east fast and calm as a glass lake. You could have fucking played. The band on B stage keep playing. I want my damn money back. Drove 5 1/2 hrs there for what? Think it wasn't blowing when Night Ranger was on? Ffs Guy
WE didn't want a KID on stage anyway. We wanted a MAN who isn't afraid of a little wind. Don't come back to ND because it's always windy here! BTW… 13 mph winds are nothing! We waited for 1 hour and 45 minutes and he didn't have the balls to come out and say cancel it himself.
Question is who really canceled the show? Kid Rock did you or was it the fair board? If it was for safety why did they leave 18000 fans in the metal grandstands and bunched together for two hours? ND patriots were really looking forward to partying with you but got screwed!!!!
