Fans leave the stadium after hearing the Garth Brooks concert has been postponed due to weather at Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tenn., Saturday, July 31, 2021.

Severe thunderstorms rolled through Nashville Saturday night, causing Nissan Stadium officials to postpone a Garth Brooks concert that drew thousands to the outdoor venue. 

Officials at the stadium announced a “lightning advisory” around 7:50 p.m., a few songs into an opening set for the Grand Ole Opry that featured country singers Chris Young, Emmylou Harris and Trisha Yearwood, plus longtime announcer Bill Cody.

Concert-goers were asked to shelter inside the stadium concourse, where some kicked off singalongs to Brooks’ biggest hits while waiting out the storm. 

The delay continued for more than an hour before the venue announced a postponement at 9:17 p.m. Concert organizers “are working with local officials in an attempt to reschedule” for Sunday night, Nissan Stadium said via Twitter.
