Jimmy Buffett's concert Saturday night at Jiffy Lube Live has been postponed over concern about Hurricane Irene, which is already making its presence felt on the Eastern Shore. The band Journey has also postponed its Sunday night concert at the same venue because of the hurricane's threat.
The 9:30 Club in Washington has also moved a concert and birthday party for godfather of go-go Chuck Brown to Sunday night.
The three are just the latest live music events affected by the hurricane. The Silopanna Music Festival, which was scheduled for Saturday in Annapolis, was also cancelled earlier this week.
Meanwhile, as of Saturday morning, the Baltimore Independent Music and Arts Festival, was keeping its schedule intact.
The Jimmy Buffett concert has been rescheduled for September 1. Journey, who was scheduled to perform with Knight Ranger and Foreigner, has postponed its concert for September 4. The announcement was made Friday.
Because of a scheduling conflict, Foreign will not make that appearance.
All tickets purchased for the concerts will be honored on the new date.
