I'm 6'4" and around 220 lbs and couldn't do a single thing as we just moved. Two people were killed at the front and a few dozen injured. It was the craziest sensation. People were falling down and you were just being carried along over them. Something I'll never forget.

Is that the show in the Paradise City video?

Yeah, you're right. For some reason I thought they had a video that was shot at the RB. I guess not.

People in Las Vegas are livid that the Lovers & Friends festival got canceled last night, a day before the event due to high wind warnings. That had to cost the promoter a fortune. I feel so bad for people who flew in and got expensive hotel rooms for this event and now have nothing to do. But I guess safety comes first. It's still barely windy though.

Hopefully they do back their word and issue refunds. It's not much considering what people spent to get there, rooms, food, etc. But something is better than nothing.

Look up Blue Ridge Rock Fest 2023. There were people from all over there for that and it got cancelled on Saturday midday due to possible bad weather(Saturday's shows never actually started as they paused everything). Plus there was a bad wind storm that came through Thursday afternoon that destroyed a bunch of peoples camp sites. While there was some rain Saturday, there was not enough inclement weather to prevent the show from going on. Come to find out, most of the help make threats to walk out due to poor working conditions and management refused to take care of it and used weather as a reason to forgo the rest of the festival. That festival was about as poorly run as a festival could be. And here we are months later and no refund in sight for anyone. Me and my daughter had tickets for Friday through Sunday and I tried to get my bank to reverse the charges, but having done the payment plan they said it was too late to file a claim. And people were already buying tickets for this years festival have yet to receive a refund as it appears there will not be one(thankfully).

They should have event cancellation insurance to take some of the sting out of it.
