The annual Calgary Stampede has had to cancel headlining concerts featuring Tim McGraw, the Dixie Chicks Carly Rae Jepsen, and rock band Kiss. These were set to take place July 10-13 at the Calgary’s Saddledome, which was severely damaged during major floods that devastated the Canadian city last month.

“Unfortunately we have just determined that the four concerts scheduled in the Saddledome cannot proceed due to the damages the facility suffered during the recent flooding,” Stampede CEO Vern Kimball told the press yesterday (July 2).

“Given the size of the four shows and that they were all intended for indoor setup with tailored effects and lighting, there was no feasible alternative,” Kimball continued.

Thoughts, prayers and love to everyone affected by the flooding in Calgary. Needed 2 postpone our show this week, but it won’t keep us away

A Bruno Mars concert scheduled for July 17 at the venue has also been postponed.

The Saddledome’s damage is so extensive, in fact, that it could potentially affect the upcoming season of the Calgary Flames, for whom the arena is home. The NHL team’s season is set to begin Oct. 6.
