The Organizers Of CBGB Fest Release Statement Regarding The Stabbing At New York City's Webster Hall!
As previously reported, the CBGB Fest show at Webster Hall that was taking place last night (July 6th) in New York City, was cancelled after multiple (at least two) concert goers were stabbed. The incident occurred right after VISION OF DISORDER's set, which meant that the CRO MAGS and SICK OF IT ALL did not get to perform. Here is what the organizers of CBGB Fest had to say about this unfortunate incident:
"We are saddened to learn about the events that occurred last night at Webster Hall. Our primary concern is always the safety and experience of New Yorkers, music fans and the general public. Naturally we will fully cooperate with law enforcement while hoping for the speedy recovery of those injured.
"Live music can be incredibly uplifting, empowering and positive. We don’t feel the actions of one person should overshadow four amazing days and nights of events that include today’s historic and unprecedented free concerts in Times Square and Central Park."
-The CBGB Festival
