Perhaps the biggest musical event to be rained out by Hurricane Irene last weekend, the Dave Matthews Band Caravan—three days of shows by the still-packing-’em-in jam-leaning stalwarts, with a slew of openers each day—has been rescheduled to take place September 16, 17, and 18; the show’s also been moved from Governors Island to Randalls Island. Tickets go on sale tomorrow at 10 a.m. at the festival’s official site; people who already bought tickets will be able to use them for the rescheduled dates. There’s a ton of nitty-gritty information on exchanges and such at the official site, which will also eventually have information on the reconfigured lineup.
Meanwhile, Spike Lee has taken to Twitter to announce that his annual Brooklyn Loves Michael Jackson Party at Prospect Park’s Nethermead Field, which was rained out last Saturday, will not be rescheduled, but that it’ll be back and bigger in 2012:
Good Morning. BAD NEWS. Brooklyn Loves MJ has been cancelled due to scheduling conflicts for this year.Hurricane Irene did us in.CON’T
I promise Brooklyn Loves MJ will be Bigger and Better in The Year of Our Lord 2012.We tried but Hurricane Irene had other thoughts.CON’T
We here at 40 Acres and SpikeDDB want to Thank everyone who worked very hard to try to make it happen.I wish all a Safe Labor Day Holiday.
Hey, you too Spike! Let’s just hope the odds hold up on that whole “20% chance of precipitation” thing.
