With South Florida in complete pandemonium with the monster Hurricane Irma on the horizon, there is confusion and incertitude over what is open and what is closed. Ticketholders for events scheduled for the days before Irma approaches might be wondering if the show will go on.
Ticketmaster has been robocalling ticketholders for Friday night's Bryan Adams concert at Bayfront Park telling them the show has been postponed. A heavy-metal fundraiser for Hurricane Harvey to be held Sunday at Churchill's also had to be called off.

Still, with the hurricane four days away from landfall in South Florida but voluntary evacuations underway, indie-rock fans have been wondering if Modest Mouse would still play at the Fillmore Miami Beach Wednesday night. After much hand-wringing over whether the city would allow it, at 1 p.m. the Fillmore confirmed the Modest Mouse show will go on. On the Facebook event page, the Fillmore posted, "TONIGHT — Modest Mouse with Mass Gothic! Doors open at 7PM, show starts at 8PM."
Tickets are still available at the box office, though people are posting all over the event page that they are selling their tickets due to hurricane preparation.
But the bandmates are ready to play, and if they can sing "Ice age, heat wave, can't complain" as Modest Mouse once did, they aren't going to allow a little thing like a natural disaster stop them from taking the stage.
