Due to an anticipated tropical weather system that is expected to bring great amounts of rain and potentially severe weather to the area over the Memorial Day weekend, the Skillet Lickers have announced that their ‘Local Legends’ Music Night at the Dacula Concert Amphitheater, originally scheduled for Sunday, May 27th, has been postponed and rescheduled for Saturday, June 2nd at 7pm.
“The forecast has consistently looked very unfavorable for the entire weekend. It looks like a total washout. We decided to go ahead and make the call now and reschedule for next Saturday, which, as of now, looks much more conducive for an outdoor concert,” says Josh Tanner, an organizer of the event. “The good news is, everything remains the same for the rescheduled show. All of our performers will be able to return for the new date. We’ll still be serving up delicious food and we’ll still have all of the same fun activities that we had planned for this weekend. We may even be able to bring in a few more Local Legends who weren’t available for the May 27th show.”
Current forecasts call for a 90% chance of heavy rain on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, with 3+ inches of rain possible. “Setup in those conditions would be miserable and I just don’t see any situation where we’re able to pull everything off. Even if there were a break in the rain, ground conditions would be rough. It’s just not suitable for a show. We want fans to be safe and enjoy themselves,” says Russ Tanner of the Skillet Lickers.
Gates will open at 5pm on June 2nd, with the show getting underway at 7pm. Tickets remain $10 and will be available at the gate. Food will be served beginning shortly after 5pm. This show’s menu theme is “A Hometown Cookout”, featuring hamburger and hot dog plates.
