The Beach Boys won’t be bringing fun, fun, fun to the McGrath Amphitheatre in Cedar Rapids on Friday night. The nearly soldout concert has been canceled in the wake of the Aug. 10 storm.
Ticket holders can request a refund at their point of purchase. Those who purchased their tickets online through Ticketmaster.com, charge-by-phone or at the U.S. Cellular Center ticket office with a credit card will receive an automatic refund.
“Cedar Rapids has once again been hit hard by Mother Nature. We had hoped to move forward with the Beach Boys show,” Michael Silva, executive director of VenuWorks Cedar Rapids, said in a prepared statement. “Many of our staff members and guests sustained significant damage to their homes and remain without power. Together with our partners, we feel the best decision is to cancel this weekend’s event.”
“We were very much looking forward to gathering safely for an evening of music and new memories with our Cedar Rapids fans and families,” said Mike Love of The Beach Boys. “Our heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with all Iowans as they recover from derecho 2020. We look forward to returning soon. Until then, please be well and take great care of each other.”
VenuWorks is in discussions with Josh Turner and his team about Saturday’s sold-out concert at the McGrath Amphitheatre.
