Curveball Cancelled!

Severe flooding has contaminated water servicing the site. Everyone must leave by noon Friday. The band released a statement written moments before heading to the stage for soundcheck.

Doctor_Smarty Severe flooding did not contaminate the site. It contaminated the water supply that services the site.

The flooding also makes treatment of all the sewage generated by 40,000 people virtually impossible. You can't bottled water this away.

The lowest prices are going up $10/hour per ticket. Not sure if prices are actually changing, or just the lowest-priced are going first.

Since when did treating sewage require potable water??? These 40,000 people weren't gonna flush a toilet 10 times a day down some sewer system and take multiple showers, wash clothes etc... Hell lots of folks have RV's. If this was a Nascar event it would still be on 100%..
