Thomas Rhett Forced To Cancel Alabama Concert

by Samantha Whidden

Bad news from Thomas Rhett. The country music superstar was forced to cancel his show in Tuscaloosa, Alabama on Thursday (July 21st) due to weather issues. 

In a post on Twitter, Thomas Rhett shared a video and wrote, “Tuscaloosa, I’m so sorry. We will be back on September 8. Stay safe out there.”

In the video, Thomas Rhett stated that due to some intense lightning, he was forced to pull the plug on the Tuscaloosa show. “I know a lot of y’all have asked if we could go on super late and as much as I would stay up until 1 o’clock in the morning to do this, that is past curfew in this town, which is 11:30. And all the people I have spoken to said the weather is not going to quit here even by the end.”

Thomas Rhett declares that the whole situation completely sucks. He then shared that he has only been rained out twice in his whole career. “We’ve already found a new date to come back,” he continued. “September the 8th. Obviously, I get that a lot of y’all travel here from other states and I just feel for ya. I’m so sorry. But this is an act of God and lightning is something we don’t play around with.”

Thomas Rhett is currently heading to the Lakewood Amphitheater in Atlanta, Georgia for his show on Friday (July 22nd). Other stops leading to the return of Tuscaloosa include Charleston, South Carolina; Salt Lake City, Utah; Morrison, Colorado; Albuquerque, New Mexico; and Seattle, Washington.

It’s just gonna be a great year to get back on the road with some new friends and get to see a bunch of my favorite people. Just watching the fans file into those shows is literally one of my favorite feeling in the world.”
