SOUTH BEND – The "Concert of the Stars" at the Four Winds Field on Sunday night was not up to par with its Pitbull star, and half of the duo meant to be an opening act did not come to the concert.
At around 9.45 pm, well after the scheduled performance of Pitbull, Andrew Berlin, owner of South Bend Cubs, spoke to announce to the crowd that the music star had not been able to travel to South Bend from Florida due to weather conditions.
The announcement was welcomed, but Berlin assured the crowd that the concert would be postponed and that all tickets would be honored. More details, including a new concert date, are due June 24th.
On social media, viewers asked why the announcement had not been made earlier and complained of having paid for parking.
The concert was one of the many events scheduled for the Midwest League all-star game on Tuesday night at Four Winds Field.
The first part of the Sunday night concert, the Ying Yang Twins, also suffered a defection. The performance is transformed into a solo act.
One of the performers, D-Roc, announced to the crowd that the other half of the duo, Kaine, could not be present. D-Roc has announced the reason twice: Kaine's brother was killed, he said. (D-Roc and Kaine are not really twins). D-Roc did not elaborate, but then played alone.
