The Band Perry cancelled Sunday night’s show in Delaware over security concerns after two men made violent threats against the venue.
Authorities say two unidentified men walked into the Americana Bayside Welcome Center and made threats to an employee at the front desk. A call to police prompted heightened security at the venue and The Band Perry ultimately decided to cancel its concert for later that night. The band was at the venue at the time of the threat and later announced the cancellation about 15 minutes before the concert was to begin.
The band released a statement saying, “While we are sad we don’t get to see you tonight, we love you and consider your well-being and security our top priority.” The show has been rescheduled for August 17th. Police are asking the public for help in identifying the two men seen in surveillance footage. (TMZ)
