“Cedar Rapids has once again been hit hard by Mother Nature. We had hoped to move forward with the Beach Boys show scheduled for this Friday,” said Michael Silva, executive director of VenuWorks Cedar Rapids. “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.”
