BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - Thursday’s Dierks Bentley concert on the Bangor waterfront has been cancelled.

We were at the still under construction venue Tuesday afternoon, which will serve as host of the Bangor Region Chamber of Commerce Dinner Tuesday night.

We spoke with Waterfront Concert’s Alex Gray about losing the season’s opening act.

“Yeah, I got a call earlier today from Dierk’s agent. Said we’re gonna cancel the show, and I said, you know, what’s going on, and he said, I’m not at liberty to discuss, and that was the extent of it. So, in the grand scheme of things, who knows, in this day and age of COVID, what you could have for, you know, potential outcomes, you know, we’ll look forward to Skynyrd and for us, it’s, you know, it’s not a terrible thing because we’re going to be working all through the summer. This was a 19-month project. It was something that was, you know, in phases. As you can see, you’ve been in this facility, all the chairs are down. We weren’t going to open the lawn for Dierks. That’s going to go down first of next week. 100 yards of flat work done yesterday. So, you know, we were really looking forward to hosting him, but unfortunately, this one’s going away,” said Gray.

Dierks Bentley is currently scheduled to play a show in Mansfield, Mass. on Friday night.
