Water Pours Down Bleachers as Halsey Concert Canceled in Maryland

Water gushed down the bleachers at the Merriweather Post Pavilion on June 8, as soaked Halsey fans waited in vain for the pop star’s concert to begin at the flooded venue in Columbia, Maryland.

Halsey was scheduled to take the stage at 7 pm but severe weather forced the venue to delay and subsequently cancel the show.

Video recorded by Brianne Pask shows concertgoers walking across a flooded floor as water streams down the bleachers.

Halsey took to Twitter to say she wanted “more than anything” to carry on with the show but that it would be “SO unsafe”.

She added that she was “beyond disappointed with the way the venue handled everything” and that her rescheduled concert would be held at a different location. Credit: Brianne Pask via Storyful
