SOUTH BEND – The "All-Star Concert" at Four Winds Field on Sunday night failed to live up to its billing after headliner Pitbull, and half of the duo that was supposed to be an opening act, did not show up for the concert
At about 9:45 pm, well after Pitbull was scheduled to perform, South Bend Cubs owner Andrew Berlin took the stage to announce to the crowd that the music star has failed to travel to South Bend from Florida because of weather conditions.
The announcement was with boos and jeers, but Berlin assured the crowd that the concert would be rescheduled and all tickets honored. More details, including a concert date, are released on June 24.
On social media, the concert was questioned why the announcement was made earlier and complained about having paid for parking.
The concert was one All-Star game on Sunday night at Four Winds Field
An opening act for Sunday night's concert, the Ying Yang Twins, also suffered from a no-show. The performance turned into a solo act.
One of the performers, D-Roc, announced to the crowd that the other half of the duo, Kaine, was unable to attend. D-Roc twice announced the reason: Kaine's brother had been killed, he said. (D-Roc and Kaine are not actually twins). D-Roc did not elaborate but went on to perform on his own.
