Pearl Jam canceled its Thursday (June 19) night show at the Riverbend Music Center in Cincinnati. The region has been experiencing heavy rains, and the water from the rise of the Ohio River has flooded the riverfront amphitheater.

Another venue couldn’t be secured with such short notice. Pearl Jam’s manager Kelly Curtis said in a statement, “The band is very disappointed they won’t be able to play Cincinnati but we understand fully the promoters’ and venue’s decision to cancel as safety is everyone’s main priority.”

All tickets will be refunded at the point of purchase. Pearl Jam’s next gig is Saturday (June 21) in East Troy, Michigan.

Pearl Jam is touring in support of its latest album, Riot Act.
