    The remainder of We Love NYC: The Homecoming Concert has been canceled due to severe weather caused by Hurricane Henri.

    Organized by Clive Davis, the massive event in Central Park celebrated New York City’s re-opening following the COVID-19 pandemic. While acts like Journey, LL Cool J, Santana, Andrea Bocelli, and Barry Manilow did take the stage, the event was canceled before headliners including Bruce Springsteen, Paul Simon, Patti Smith, Elvis Costello, and The Killers were able to perform.

    The capacity crowd of 60,000 were asked to vacate the concert’s grounds and seek shelter.

    Organizers initially hoped to resume the concert once the weather cleared, but the event was officially canceled shortly after 10:30 p.m. local time.
