Lollapalooza Evacuates on Day One, Lorde and Others Cut Short

Lollapalooza  got off to a bit of a rocky start on its opening day.

Thursday afternoon, Liam Gallagher walked off the stage just four songs into his set, later taking to Twitter to explain that vocal issues forced him to cut the performance short.

Hip-hop trio Migos' also pushed their set back 40 minutes due to travel delays, forcing them to make the most of a shortened time slot.

Then just after 9 p.m. local time, Lorde, Muse, Lil Uzi Vert and Porter Robinson all had their sets canceled when the festival had to evacuate Grant Park due to inclement weather in the area. Lorde, who was to headline the evening, tweeted her disappointment, saying she had “the most spectacular show planned” and calling the whole situation “the most MELODRAMA shit ever.”

Muse frontman Matt Bellamy also took to social media to say he was “gutted,” thanking fans for rocking with them through the rain.

Hopefully, the legendary festival has better luck on day two.
