I've seen lots of reasons for canceled concerts over the years, but here's a new one.
The k.d. lang show scheduled for tonight at the Eagle River Pavilion has been nixed because of poor air quality in the Treasure Valley.
The decision was made by lang. The show was set up and ready to go. Chairs were already out on the grass. The photo below was taken last night.
From a story today at IdahoStatesman.com: "The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality has posted an orange air quality alert for today in Ada and Canyon counties.
An orange alert means the air is unhealthy for those with breathing issues — including people with lung disease, children, older adults, and people who are active outdoors.
The DEQ also suggests that everyone should postpone any strenuous activity outside until air quality improves. They are also asking people to limit driving and to combine errands into a single trip to help curb exhaust emissions and to put off mowing the lawn (if you use a gas-powered mower) until air quality improves."
