Weather Forces Journey to Change Plans – Again

Hurricane Sandy, Superstorm Sandy, Frankenstorm, the storm of the century, a storm of Historic proportions. Whatever you want to call it, it’s one for the record books and another record has been set. This time for the band Journey. 

For the second time this year, Journey has been forced to change their plans and reschedule a show due to a Hurricane.

Back in August Journey, Pat Benatar and Loverboy were forced to cancel a concert in Louisiana thanks to Hurricane Isaac. Yesterday, the bands made a collective announcement that their show scheduled tonight for the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, New York would be canceled thanks to Sandy and there are no plans to rebook the date. The announcement on the band’s website does have refund information. Journey and Loverboy will be playing another date without Pat Benatar in Connecticut on Friday while Pat Benatar has a date scheduled for New Jersey on Thursday, but not with Journey and Loverboy. Maybe they’re tired of hurricanes wrecking their tour.

Those guys aren’t the only ones who have to switch their plans. Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Simple Man Cruise had to change their route, but the band did do a set on the upper deck of the ship. They played for about an hour in the rain and hurricane force winds. Instead of going to the Bahamas as originally planned, the ship’s port of call will now be Cozumel, Mexico thanks to lingering high winds and heavy surf in the wake of Sandy.

So far, Sandy has caused around 80 deaths in the U.S. and Caribbean, caused power outages to millions up and down the East Coast. There is also heavy flooding, uprooted trees and the dollar amount on the damage is into the billions.
