Riverbend Music Center just announced that the James Taylor concert originally scheduled for this Friday, July 17 has been postponed and rescheduled to Sunday, July 26.
Due to the unprecedented rain fall over the past few weeks the levels of the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers are exceptionally high for this time of year. The Army Corps of Engineers has the Ohio River forecast continuing to rise over the next 48 hours causing flooding of the stage area at Riverbend. Due to these conditions the James Taylor concert cannot be performed this Friday as scheduled.
Tickets for the original show date will be honored for the rescheduled Sunday, July 26th concert. Tickets for the concert are still available for purchase at Ticketmaster.com, Riverbend.org, and all Ticketmaster outlets.
