Michael Franti, Wailers show cancelled

AMP Concerts and the Town of Taos have announced the cancellation of the Michael Franti concert tonight at Kit Carson Park. The cancellation was due to heavy rains throughout the week.

According to an email sent out to subscribers and ticket holders around 2 p.m. this afternoon, the park is “a soggy, muddy mess.” More rain was predicted to hit the Taos area Saturday night.

The announcement also referenced safety as a concern, citing several lighting strikes in the vicinity of the park on Friday night.

The email from AMP Concerts said that all ticket purchases would be refunded, starting sometime next week.
