Wind Creek Hotel & Casino Cancellation

June 11, 2012 by Vanessa 3 Comments

The scheduled concert appearance of ZZ Top and 3 Door Down on Saturday, June 9th at the Wind Creek Hotel & Casino Amphitheater was cancelled based on a determination that structural condition of the stage made it unsafe for the performers, their crews and the audience.

ZZ Top issued the following statement, once it was confirmed that both ZZ and 3DD wouldn't be able to perform:

"We're definitely from 'the show must go on' school but had to draw the line this time when we found out that numerous hazards were present at the venue. We couldn't, in good conscience, do the show knowing that the safety for those on and off stage would be in jeopardy. We had hoped the situation would have been addressed and corrected by show time but, sadly, that wasn't the case so we just had to 'pull the plug' for the sake of all concerned. We hope our fans and friends understand that the decision that was made was the only one we could abide in light of those conditions."

    Can't believe Wind Creek pulled that! They have had some big acts play there.
    Thanks for explaining what happened. We all thought it was weather related. Hate the show was cancelled; have been waiting to see ZZ Top for a long while, but was never in the right place at the right time. Oh well, maybe next year (though I'm sure it won't be at Wind Creek Casino).

    Wow! I am stunned to read this. Well, after what happened at Indy last year, I suppose they (performers) can't ever again be tooooooo careful/careless. Of course, I have NO IDEA of what actually occurred. One can only assume.

    I am just severely bummed for all the fans and EVERYONE that missed out on a rompin' stompin' good time with the BANDitos.

    Sorry to all!!
