Weather postpones Windy City LakeShake

Saturday, June 20, 2015 – Brad Paisley was slated to head the Windy City LakeShake country music festival in Chicago on Saturday, but weather canned his appearance until Sunday.

"Due to the ongoing weather conditions and the safety of our fans being the highest priority, we're postponing the remainder of Saturday's Windy City LakeShake. Brad Paisley has graciously agreed to stay in Chicago and play on Sunday along with all other scheduled Sunday performers," said Brian O' Connell, Live Nation President of Country Touring in a statement.

Thunder, lightning and rain hit the Chicago area on Saturday.

Paisley sent out a tweet, "OK Chicago: lake shake postponed tonight; BUT...I'm staying. I'll be playing tomorrow night now, along with everyone else. Never Surrender!"

It was unclear exactly when Paisley would play.

Fans attending the fest were advised at about 7:15 p.m. to head to a parking lot at nearby Soldier Field. That was just before Justin Moore was scheduled to play.

The three-day festival began Friday with Dierks Bentley headlining last night. Florida Georgia Line headlines the Sunday show.

CD review - Hits Alive Brad Paisley's new live hits CD is a bit of a tease. That's because it only goes half way in replicating the true live Paisley experience. Watching the accompanying concert videos at a Paisley show, whether the venue screen is showing Andy Griffith during Waitin' on a Woman or the montage of recently-deceased celebrities that accompanies When I Get Where I'm Going, reveal how Paisley simply must be seen to be fully enjoyed. Nevertheless, Paisley in concert and captured on ...
CD review - American Saturday Night Brad Paisley has grown up on his eighth album. Yes, the West Virginian maintains a sense of humor, but apparently aging has left its mark on a maturing singer who has never forsaken his country roots. That is ever so apparent in songs like Anything Like Me and Oh Yeah, You're Gone. The former finds Paisley looking at the passage of time through his son's life in a tender, but not sappy look. On the latter, he's a five-year-old boy who doesn't get what he wants, which his grandfather notices. ...
