Making a Good Decision--Calling a Show For Bad Weather

I've written a lot about show management making bad weather-related decisions that has led to catastrophes.  So I'm happy to write about management making a good decision.  From Pollstar:

Wind gusts had reached 40 mph and production, artist management and venue management made a collective decision to not have the show go forward, according to Live Nation’s Jeff Trisler.

 “We’ve soldiered through some pretty rough situations in the past but this one was unique,” Trisler told Pollstar. “The stage is perched on a cliff, and the back and the sides are typically where the wind comes from, and we have very strong wind walls. This was unique in that the wind was coming in from the front, where there is no protection.”
