(UPDATED) Summer Ends Music Festival Canceled Due to Weather

Update 2:Good news for tonight. From Luckyman Concerts' Facebook page: "Tentatively to play, The Maine Taking Back Sunday Luscious Jackson Descendents (Official) & The Replacements"

Update: According to a press release from Luckyman Concerts, which organized Summer Ends Music Festival, the city of Tempe shut down the festival at 2:30 p.m. Organizers are still working on the details, but they have confirmed that they are trying to move tonight's events to the Marquee Theatre.

"We have spoken to all the bands on today's bill and most are ready and willing to perform at the Marquee Theatre tonight", Tom LaPenna of Lucky Man Concerts said in the press release.

All scheduled performances tomorrow have been moved to the Marquee Theatre.

Paid tickets will be honored tonight, and comp tickets will be honored on a space-available basis. Vouchers will be given to those with tickets who choose not to attend tonight's festival.

Original story: Well, can't say we're surprised. But we have word that the Summer Ends Music Festival scheduled for today has been canceled.

The highlight of today was performances by the Descendents and the Replacements on the national stage, and Black Carl, Fayuca, and Playboy Manbaby on the local stage.

There's talk that some of the performances might move to the Marquee Theatre. We will update if we hear more.
