Hurricane Irene is roaring up the east coast of the U.S. and has caused organizers of the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival to reschedule a Sunday date in suburban Boston.
The show, slated for the Comcast Center in Mansfield, Mass., is right in the projected path of the massive storm, which is expected to slam into the Massachusetts coastline sometime Sunday afternoon - just as Avenged Sevenfold, Seether, Bullet for My Valentine, Black Tide and the rest of the bill would be on the venue's outdoor stages.

“Safety first…We don’t want any of our fans to get hurt,” said M. Shadows of Avenged Sevenfold. “We decided to move the show from Sunday to Tuesday so all of you crazy fucks can make it and stay safe.”

"We apologize for any inconvenience to the fans, but safety is our first concern. We want everyone to be able to enjoy a full afternoon and evening of rock at UPROAR,” said Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival co-producer John Oakes. “After the Category 3 storm blows through New England on Sunday, UPROAR promises to bring a Category 5 rock storm on Tuesday.”

The tour starts in Camden, N.J. Friday and hits Scranton, Penn. on Saturday before taking the storm hiatus until Tuesday's Boston show.

After seeing that stage collapse in Indiana; I for one am glad that the concert was postponed, for the saftey of the fans, road crew who do all the grunt work, and of course the bands that make us all crazy with the power of rock.

I don't approve. A7X are a hard-working bunch that need the on-stage practice to ensure that they deliver an excellent set for their fans. Put up the stage and let them practice for the show!.........(snicker)
