Musician Kid Rock was forced to cancel his concert at the North Dakota State Fair in Minot on Friday night due to high winds, prompting attendees to start trashing the venue.
The performance was canceled at the last minute, after more than two hours of fans watching Night Ranger perform for the opening act. There would have been wind and lightning on the outskirts of town, which would have delayed the Knight Ranger show.
Fans were captured on video throwing beer cans and bottles towards the stage after learning the event had been cancelled, upset because it looked like the storm was starting to clear up.

“SO P—ED OFF we weren’t able to play for a sold out crowd tonight in Minot, ND (due to high winds) – I know it sucks but none of us can control mother nature. Please be careful as you leave and take care of each other,” he wrote.
There were around 18,000 fans in attendance, according to TMZ.
The North Dakota State Fair said in a statement that the performance was canceled for safety reasons and promised to refund ticket holders.
