Halsey’s Maryland gig turned into a flooded, rodent-infested nightmare

Halsey’s Maryland gig turned into a flooded, rodent-infested nightmare

“I’m not a woman, I’m a god,” Halsey proclaimed in a song, but even she can’t control the weather.

The singer was forced to cancel her Wednesday night show in Maryland after a storm flooded the ironically titled Merriweather Post Pavilion, calling the situation “literally crazy” in an Instagram Live.

“Basically what happened was there were unexpected and unpredictable weather conditions that the weather experts ‘she works with on the road’ didn’t even see coming, storm cells which appeared very, very quickly and immediately became dangerous.”

She apologized to fans stuck in the amphitheater for hours before the cancellation was announced, explaining that local authorities had advised her team to shelter the venue in place to avoid a stampede.

Images of the flooded hall were posted by Twitter users during Wednesday’s concert, showing the “unreal” stage: water up to your ankles, the rain hammers the seatsand, in one video, a roadie kicking what appeared be a soaked squirrel offstage.

“Maryland, I don’t even know what to say…” Halsey wrote on Twitter, promising a rescheduled show in a separate tweet. “But right now I’m heartbroken and panicking and just want to know when/that y’all are getting home safely. I love you more than anything.”

In a pair of follow-up tweets, the singer responding to a question from a fan asking why she failed to take the stage, writing“I promise I wanted more than anything. But I couldn’t because it would have been SO dangerous if I went out there and people rushed onto the stage during or after the storm. A lot of things were out of my check tonight but i promise all i COULD choose, i chose your safety.

She continued“I really want to add that I’m beyond disappointed with how the venue handled everything tonight and my rescheduled date will be somewhere else. I hear you loud and clear, I promise.
