Brooks & Dunn Postpone New York Trip

The power outage that hit New York and other cities in the northeastern U.S. Thursday (Aug. 14) forced the cancellation of Brooks & Dunn’s Friday morning (Aug. 15) appearance as part of The Today Show’s summer concert series. The musicians were about to fly out of the Nashville International Airport when they received the news of the problems in New York. The duo’s production truck had made it to New Jersey, and other equipment was in storage near New York’s LaGuardia airport when the power outage occurred. They still plan to perform a Saturday (Aug. 16) concert in Kix Brooks’ hometown of Shreveport, La. Explaining that they hope to reschedule the Today appearance, Brooks says, “Then everything will have a happy, if disjointed, disorienting ending.” 08/15/03
